Luis Suarez, Darwin Nunez, and Facundo Pellestri are the most notable attackers on the team. Marcelo Bielsa’s side, in fact, are among the favorites to win the Copa America in the US.

Panama: Panama are the minnows of Group C. However, they reached the final in the 2023 CONCACAF Gold Cup final. Replicating such a result could be difficult.

Bolivia: Bolivia are the lowest ranked team in Group C. They are currently 85th in the FIFA rankings. Like Panama, they lack out-and-out star powers. Bolivia are perhaps the weakest team in Group C. It would take an extraordinary upset for them to defy the odds at Copa America 2024.
