La Albiceleste begin their campaign against Colombia on Sunday morning (00h00 South African time) as they go in search of their 15th title.

Argentina have been losing finalists in the last two editions (2015 and 2016), losing to Chile on both occasions.

“If we win the Copa America, I will retire," Scaloni told reporters, according to Fox Sports.

“This team reached two Copa America finals.

It’s important to think about it and know that it’s very difficult to reach there and nothing was won. It will be very difficult and complicated.

“We are here to play all the matches and to show that these players can play with this shirt.”
