  • Messi and Argentina await Socceroos at Copa America

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.

Graham Arnold's men, who will be guests at the tournament, were drawn in Group A for the South American continental championship, which starts on June 12.

While the draw took place on Tuesday, the nations already knew nearly all of their opponents with teams split into zones for next year's tournament in Argentina and Colombia. It will be co-hosted by Colombia and Argentina.

Argentina and Colombia were chosen as hosts after South American football's governing body CONMEBOL turned down an offer from the United States Soccer Federation to hold an expanded 16-team edition of the Copa America.

At this year's Copa America, won by host nation Brazil, the 12 teams taking part in the event competed in three first round groups of four teams, with the top two in each group and the two best third placed teams advancing to the quarter-finals.

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

The Selecao beat Peru 3-1 in the 2019 Copa America final having also seen off Argentina and Paraguay on their way to the decider.

"Chile has always been hard for Argentina, especially in recent times".

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

That means Australia will play their five group stages matches in Argentina against the two-time World Cup champions, Uruguay, Chile, Bolivia and Paraguay.
