How Many Copa Americas Has Argentina Won?

Argentina are the favorites to win the 2024 Copa America and if the Albiceleste win the tournament, they would set a new record for the most Copa America titles in history.

The first Copa America took place in 1916, and a total of 47 editions of the competition were held over the next century. The 48th edition starts this summer in the USA. The 16 participating nations, including 6 CONCACAF teams, were divided into four groups that determined the first matches of the tournament.

Beyond the group stage, the knockout matches will feature the best teams and players of the 2024 Copa America. Ultimately, two teams will meet in the final on July 14, and Lionel Messi will want to make sure he is the one to lift the historic trophy at Hard Rock Stadium.

Here’s a breakdown of all of Argentina’s Copa America wins before the eight-time Ballon d’Or winner potentially makes history at the 2024 Copa America.

Lionel Messi has won a Copa America. In 2021, the Argentine led his country to its first Copa America victory since 1993.

Messi was named the Copa America’s best player for his performances in the tournament. He scored four goals and provided five assists in Argentina’s seven matches. The world champion also won the Golden Shoe.

If Messi wins the 2024 Copa America, it would be his third major international trophy in as many years, having never won one in his entire career.
