Draws for Copa America 2024 have concluded, and the two teams that are thrilled with it are Argentina and Brazil. The US may eventually gain confidence as well, but it remains to be seen how it drafts its strategies in the end. The 15-time winner comes fresh from beating Brazil 1-0. They are now set to lock horns in Group A with Peru and Chile, as the contest for the final spot is ongoing.
Brazil enters Copa America as a South American heavyweight. While the tides have not precisely favored them in recent times, a member of Group D is optimistic that it will advance by beating Colombia, Paraguay, and the winner of the playoff, Costa Rica versus Honduras.
The nine-time winner will face severe competition from Colombia. They are tasked with not losing their other two games to have a better chance. Colombian fans expect the side to defeat five-time World Cup winners the way they previously did in World Cup qualifiers.
The American dream lives on as the country gets locked into Group C. Other contenders are Panama, Uruguay, and Bolivia. The US may defend its pride against Panama and Bolivia, but beating Uruguay in the game of football will be a far-fetched goal. The community has already expressed that the hosts will face a challenging task.
However, Panama is emerging as a strong contender as well. They have lost only a single game in the last 13 games that they have played. That has brought them under the limelight, for a stage where they could give a tough fight to Uruguay.
Argentina will play the kind of football that fans may not get to see again for a long time. Ever since this news, the fans of the online football betting industry has set up high expectations with their favorite teams. This comes on the surface because there are hints that Messi and coach Lionel Scaloni may step down from their respective positions or games. Adding to this is a confirmation from Ángel Di María. He has announced his retirement by saying that the tournament will mark the end of his run for the sport.
It comes with a heavy heart to conclude that it will be Peru versus Chile as the most anticipated game, despite the Argentine side poised to win by a broad margin against the opponents.
Finally, it is Group B that grabs the maximum number of eyeballs. It houses Mexico, Venezuela, Ecuador, and Jamaica.
