La Albiceleste will be facing Canada the third time.

The debutants Canada have it to the semi-finals, surpassing every prediction in the world. Now they are to face the defending champions Argentina in a mouth-watering tie, especially for their fans. Can Canada dig deep and go a step further? Maybe or maybe not. Anyways, they have the neutral’s heart in this must-win match.

Your team will be favoured when you have the best active player on the planet. That is undoubtedly the situation with Argentina who will be led by Lionel Messi on the pitch. La Albiceleste centres their team on the still-magical, soon-to-be 37-year-old, with an exceptionally talented supporting cast.

Longtime international partners Angel Di Maria, Julian Alvarez of Manchester City, Alexis Mac Allister of Liverpool and Emi Martinez of Aston Villa are some of the best players in the squad chosen by Lionel Scaloni.

Canada returns to the international football scene on Thursday, this time with a new strategy and new leadership. However, with the Copa America starting in Atlanta on Thursday featuring Lionel Messi and top-ranked Argentina, new Canada manager Jesse Marsch needs to be cautious.

While special in their own right, Copa America opponents like World Cup champion Argentina, FIFA ranked no. 32 Chile and no. 42 Peru are steps towards the 2026 FIFA World Cup, which Canada is co-hosting, as Marsch, who assumed over the 49th-ranked Canadian side on May 13, has been making clear.

Argentina also have other top sides in their groups and one of them is Chile against whom they will play a replay of the 2016 Copa America final in the USA in their second group match. Although the present Chilean side is very different from the one that defeated Messi’s side on penalties in the past, Alexis Sanchez will still be there on the pitch as a possible Messi foil.
