Argentina ended a 28-year wait for a major international honor in winning the 2021 Copa America in biggest rivals Brazil's backyard last time. Not only did that victory propel Lionel Messi into GOAT status, the Albiceleste went on to win the World Cup the following year and put matters beyond doubt. Much of that team remains – Emiliano Martinez in goal, Marcos Acuna in defense, Alexis MacAllister in midfield and Angel Di Maria to go with Messi up front – but is this going to be one tournament too many for the 15-time winners?

Canada may lack major finals experience, but the raw talent is there for the Canucks to go well in the tournament hosted by their near neighbors. Captain Alphonso Davies is among the best full-backs in world soccer, while Jonathan David has been bagging goal after goal for Lille in the French top flight for a number of seasons now. Throw in Stephen Eustaquio of Porto and you've got a great spine. Can former Leeds boss Jesse Marsch inspire a high-pressing upset?
