The Copa América, the world's oldest international football competition, returns this summer, when South America and, somewhat bizarrely, special guests Japan and Qatar will descend on Brazil to battle for continental supremacy.

This is the first time in 30 years that it has been played in Brazil, with the Seleção lifting the trophy every other time it has been held on their shores (1989, 1949, 1922, 1919).

The Brazilians will have a strong squad led by Neymar, but Argentina are also vying for success and hoping to finally deliver a first international title for Lionel Messi after losing finals in 2007, 2015 and 2016 - the latter even sparking a temporary retirement from international football.

Aiming for an unprecedented third consecutive Copa América title, Chile will be looking to bounce back from the disappointment of missing out on the World Cup in 2018, while Uruguay are always dangerous and Colombia will certainly hope to spring something of a surprise.
