Lionel Messi's Argentina fell short once more in the last edition of the Copa America in 2019, but they have a chance for redemption in the 2021 tournament.

It will not be easy, however, with reigning champions Brazil out to defend their title and underdogs are out to claim some scalps.

After a year-long delay due to Covid-19 - and Argentina and Colombia being stripped of hosting duties - Copa America is well under way in Brazil.

Goal brings you everything you need to know, including when the games are, match results and more.

Who are the Copa America 2021 hosts?

Brazil were named as replacement 2021 Copa America hosts after Colombia was stripped of Copa America hosting rights due to ongoing anti-government protest, while Argentina's hosting rights were suspended after a surge in Covid-19 cases in the country.

The competition was initially set to be held across nine venues in nine cities in Colombia and Argentina.

Who won the last Copa America?

Brazil were the winners of the previous Copa America, which took place in 2019 in Brazil.

They defeated Peru 3-1 in the final thanks to goals from Everton, Gabriel Jesus and Richarlison, with Paolo Guerrero scoring for Peru.

It was the Selecao's ninth Copa triumph, moving them closer to Argentina, who have won 14 times, and Uruguay, who are the most successful team in the history of the competition with 15 titles.
