Lionel Messi has a chance to win the Copa America on his own turf next summer - but Argentina manager Lionel Scaloni says the competition will be about more than just the Barcelona star.

The 12-team tournament, which runs from June 12 to July 12, includes all 10 teams from South America plus invited guests Australia and Qatar, who were the final sides to be placed in groups.

Argentina will play the 2020 Copa America opener on June 12 at home against Chile - a team The Albicelestes defeated 2-1 to claim third position in 2019 Copa America.

Qatar had made its debut in the Copa America earlier this year.

Argentina will open next year's tournament against Chile at El Monumental on 12 June, it was revealed on Tuesday.

Zelenskiy also said that he has difficulty digesting Trump's continued claim that Ukraine is corrupt, a label that pre-dates Zelenskiy's time in office.

Australia's only win against Argentina in a men's global came in 1988 when it famously triumphed 4-1 in Sydney, with Arnold featuring in the home side's line-up.

They have won four of their nine encounters with Uruguay, with the most recent victory coming in the epic World Cup qualifier in Sydney in 2005.

Qatar played in this year's Copa America along with Japan, drawing its opening group match but failing to get past the group stage.

Australia is one of two guest nations competing in the tournament, along with Qatar.

Argentina have not won the tournament since 1993 while Colombia have lifted the trophy only once - when they hosted it in 2001. After losing back-to-back Copa America finals to La Roja on penalties, Argentina will reignite their rivalry with the 2015 and 2016 champions.
