Argentina’s Copa America Record: Number of Titles Won

Argentina’s Copa America History and Records

After years of frustration and heartbreak, Argentina finally ended their long wait for a Copa America title in 2021. Led by the legendary Lionel Messi, La Albiceleste secured their 15th title, putting them on par with their historic rivals Uruguay as the joint most successful nation in the competition’s history.

Success for Messi came after numerous final losses and near misses, making the victory even sweeter for the former Barcelona superstar. The win was a culmination of years of hard work and dedication to his national team, and it solidified his legacy as one of the greatest footballers of all time.

While their triumph at the 2022 FIFA World Cup may have overshadowed their Copa America win, Argentina remains amongst the favorites to lift the trophy once again in 2024. With a talented squad and the leadership of Messi, the team is poised to continue their success on the international stage.

Looking back at Argentina’s historical record at the Copa America, the team has qualified for all 47 editions of the tournament, although they have opted to withdraw on four occasions. Their impressive tally of 15 titles is a testament to their dominance in South American football, and they will be looking to add to their trophy cabinet in the upcoming tournament.

As Messi aims for more records in 2024, he remains Argentina’s leading appearance maker at the Copa America with 37 games played across seven tournaments. The star forward also has 13 goals in the competition, putting him on par with Argentina greats Gabriel Batistuta and Juan Manuel Moreno. Norberto Mendez leads the way with 17 goals, setting the benchmark for future generations to strive towards.

With their rich history and formidable squad, Argentina is ready to defend their title and make a strong statement at the 2024 Copa America in the United States. Fans around the world will be eagerly watching as Messi and his teammates look to add another chapter to their storied legacy in international football.
