Lionel Scaloni’s side won all three of their matches without conceding a single goal.

Argentina headed into the tournament among the favourites, having won the World Cup in 2022.

Messi, 37, has only featured in two games so far and has provided one assist.

The Notorious is confident that Argentina can go all the way to retain their title.


The UFC fighter has made a bet on the team to win their 16th Copa America worth a staggering £350k.

He shared the bet slip on Instagram, which showed that he could be set to win a payout worth £1,003,750.

He captioned the post: “The World Cup Champs, Argentina, aim to follow in The Mac’s footsteps by becoming The Champ Champs by lifting The Copa América trophy.

“The OG Champ Champ is behind you!”

McGregor became the first fighter to hold UFC titles in multiple divisions after he beat Eddie Alvarez at UFC 205.

Fans reacted to the Irishman’s post as they wished him luck with his eye-watering stake.

One posted: “Best of luck.”

A second wrote: “I love you, Notorious. Thanks for trusting us.”

A third commented: “Bro bet 1/3 million dollars like nothing.”

A fourth said: “Bros onto side missions.”

Another added: “You have too much faith bro.”

There has already been plenty of drama at the tournament this year.

Former Chelsea star Christian Pulisic was snubbed by referees after he tried to shake their hands after the USA were beaten by Uruguay.

West Ham star Lucas Paqueta suffered the misfortune of horror penalty as he blazed his effort over the bar against Paraguay.

With more sides to his personality than an Octagon, Conor McGregor’s rise has been an enthralling watch.
