Australia is also a good team and that is why they have been invited to play this edition of Copa America after Qatar. This is the second involvement of Qatar, having previously played in the 2019 edition, and this is the competition debut for Australia to take part in Copa America. In Addition, Australia is also the winner of the Asia Cup in 2015. They have themselves a pretty good that fight against any team in the Copa. Even though they are an invited team and yet they playing really well in other continents’ condition. They have players like Mathew Leckie, Awer Mabil, Brandon Borrello, Martin Boyle; in the forward which makes their team quite strong against another team.
There is no argument that Messi is one of the great football players of all time. He has won so many personal trophy and many for Barcelona but the biggest overdue of his life is that he did not win any international trophy for Argentina which is the biggest regret of his life. Therefore, this edition of Copa America in 2020 will be a great opportunity for Messi to silverware his glorious career and lots of achievements before his retires. Paulo Dybala, Lautaro Martinez, Sergio Aguero; are there to support Messi and Argentina to win an international trophy for their fans all over the world.
In my opinion, Argentina is going to win the match against Australia by 2-1.
