Argentina vs Chile: times, TV & how to watch online

Argentina's 2021 Copa America campaign kicks-off in Rio de Janiero as they face Chile in a tough Group A opening match.

Brazil is hosting the Copa after CONMEBOL controversially removed Argentina and Colombia as co-hosts due to respective political and covid-19 issues.

Despite being one of the country's worst hit by the coronavirus health crisis, Brazil was awarded hosting duties for this year's showpiece event, which was already pushed back a year because of covid-19.

Chilean hoodoo

Twice a losing finalist in 2015 and 2016 - each time to Chile - the Albiceleste came third at the tournament two years ago after losing in the semi-finals to Brazil.

While they did at least defeat La Roja in that bronze-medal match, those two penalty shoot-out losses were tough to swallow for Messi, who has been unable to match his remarkable club success for his country.

Only Uruguay (15) have won this tournament more often than Argentina (14), but their last title came in 1993 and they have lost four consecutive finals, having also been beaten in 2004 and 2007.

Messi speaks

Speaking to the media ahead of the Copa opener, the Rosario born claimed: "I think this is the time to strike a blow and the chance could come in this Copa America," said the Barcelona forward and six-time winner of the best player in the world award.

"My big dream is to win a title with the national team. I was very close on many occasions and unfortunately it didn't work out. I will keep going until I can't any more."

"I've been lucky enough to win everything at a club level and on an individual level and it would be beautiful to win with the national team as well."
