Argentina

FIFA's first-ranked team, Argentina, are undoubtedly one of the favorites to win the 2024 Copa America. Argentina won the 47th edition of the Copa America in 2021 after defeating Brazil 1-0 in the final, with Angel Di Maria scoring the game's decisive goal.

After winning the Copa America, they won the Finalissimo Final against Italy. They crowned everything with a win at the 2022 FIFA World Cup, where they defeated the defending champions, France, in a dramatic final that ended 3-3, but Argentina won 4-2 on penalties. With their outstanding recent form, Argentina is believed to repeat last season’s success here and win the tournament again.

Uruguay

Uruguay have the record for the joint-most Copa America titles in history—they have won 15 titles alongside Argentina. They are currently ranked 15 in the April FIFA ranking and are 6th in the rankings if we only consider the teams participating in this tournament. Uruguay and the United States, Panama, and Bolivia are in Group C. Darwin Núñez, Federico Valverde, and Ronald Araújo are all top players who can make this side win the Copa America titles again for the first time since 2011.

Brazil

Brazil are one of the best teams not only in America but in the world at large. They are ranked 5th in the April FIFA rankings and have won a record five World Cup trophies and 9 Copa America titles. The Brazilian national team will need to rely on the experience of Neymar, Vinícius Júnior, Richarlison, Gabriel Jesus, Casemiro, Lucas Paquetá, Bruno Guimarães, Marquinhos, Gabriel, Éder Militão, and Danilo to get their first title since 2019.

Mexico

Although Mexico are not a member of the South American Football Confederation, CONMEBOL, they have often been invited to participate in the Copa América since 1993 and have participated 11 times. However, they have not played in two recent editions (2019 and 2021). Despite that, Mexico are the most successful invitee, and this history speaks well for them going into the 2024 edition. They were runners-up in their first year (1993) and 2001. In 1997, 1999, and 2007, they clinched the bronze medal. Héctor Moreno, César Montes, Jesús Gallardo, Jorge Sánchez, and Guillermo Ochoa are expected to be great contributors to their success this period.

Colombia

Colombia surprisingly missed out on the 2022 World Cup, but after the setback, they have bounced back and have a 20-match unbeaten run that has seen them beat the likes of Brazil, Spain and Germany. The 2001 champions have the likes of Luis Diaz, James Rodriguez, Davinson Sánchez, Yerry Mina, Stefan Medina, and David Ospina to rely on in the tournament. 

Colombia are in Group D and will play against Brazil, Paraguay, and Costa Rica in the group. They will play their first game against Paraguay on June 24, Costa Rica on June 28, and their last group game against Brazil on July 3.
