The draw for the 2024 Copa America is released, and the Argentine team with Messi will usher in a very special Copa America event, first of all, the Argentine team is the defending champion, so this Copa America, the whole focus should be on whether Argentina can defend the Copa America, in addition, Di Maria will announce his retirement from the national team after this Copa America, which is also the end of an era, and the most noteworthy thing is that this is also Messi's last Copa America.
After the draw was released, fans paid more attention to it, after all, this year's Copa America, the number of participating teams has increased, four groups, a total of 12 teams participated, including two play-off teams in Group A and Group C, after competition, to be able to enter the group stage of the competition.

Group A: Argentina, Peru, Chile, Canada/Trinidad and Tobago
Group B: Mexico, Ecuador, Venezuela, Bolivia
Group C: USA, Uruguay, Panama, Costa Rica/Honduras
Group D: Brazil, Colombia, Paraguay, Jamaica
As the winners of the Copa America, Argentina were placed in Group A, and their opponents were the winners between Peru, Chile and Canada, as well as Trinidad and Tobago.
Although the Argentine team defeated Chile in the last third place battle, you must know that in the Argentine team and Messi's peak, Chile won two Copa America championships, which made Messi's fans always difficult to let go, so this Copa America can meet the Chilean team, which can be regarded as an end. Messi will go on to get revenge. Beat Chile to get an extraordinary victory in the group stage.
Group B, Mexico has not been in the Copa America for a long time, Mexico's strength is very tough, in this group, only Ecuador's strength can be compared with Mexico, but now Venezuela is ranked very high, it should be said that this team has improved by leaps and bounds in recent years, and it should not be underestimated.
Group C, the group where the United States team is located, whether it can qualify is still two words, after all, in addition to the old powerhouse Uruguay team of the Copa America, Panama, and Costa Rica are very tough teams, the battle for qualifying in this group should be very fierce and stalemate, looking at the strength on paper, it should be Uruguay to win the first place in the group, and the other three teams compete for the second place in the group.
The Brazilian team in Group D suffered a hardcore blow, and the current Brazilian team has lost its self-confidence and morale to win, unless the head coach is changed, it is possible to lose any team it plays with, and in Group D, there are more hardcore teams.
In addition to Jamaica, Colombia and Paraguay are two very difficult teams in the South American qualifiers, their overall strength is stronger, although there are not too many well-known players, but the comprehensive strength and entanglement ability often bring greater difficulties to strong teams like Brazil and Argentina. Brazil need to be careful, otherwise it will be more difficult to qualify.
To sum up this Copa America, the Argentine team is in Group A because of its super strength, so the signing is relatively okay, and the main task of the group stage is to defeat the Chilean team and qualify as the first in the group. And Uruguay should not have much problem advancing to the knockout round. The remaining Groups B and D, although they have a strong Brazilian team, are predictably very competitive in these two groups. The qualifying situation is also uncertain.
