It just had to be, didn't it? With the 2019 Copa América on home turf, the smart money was always going to be Brazil going all the way. But they still have to beat Peru, who haven't won this tournament in 80 years. We can't tell you who will win, but we can answer the most important question of all - how to get a 2019 Copa América live stream from wherever on Earth you are.

The Copa América is the talk of the town across South America right now as one of the world's biggest football tournaments is taking place in Brazil for the first time in 30 years.

Copa América 2019 - where and when

Copa América 2019 has played out over 26 matches around nine stadiums in five cities across Brazil - from the Arena Corinthians in Sao Paulo to the iconic Estadio do Maracana in Rio which is set to host Sunday's final.

As Conmebol, the South American football federation, only has ten members, two other teams are invited from other continents to take part in order to allow a three group tournament structure. This year's guests are Japan and World 2022 hosts Qatar.

Having failed to mirror his trophy-laden club career with Barcelona on the international stage, Lionel Messi's tournament hoodoo with Argentina has continued. It was the combination of Gabriel Jesus and Roberto Firmino that prevailed in the semi-finals for Brazil. It's worth noting that the men in yellow have won the tournament on the four previous occasions that they've held it.

Despite having won the competition twice on the spin, Chile have come up one short this year and took a 3-0 thrashing from Peru in their semi-final. Peru may not have the recognisable names of their final foes and will be undisputed underdogs on Sunday, but they'll fight from kick-off to take the biggest win of their generation.
