It also pits two of the best players in the world: Lionel Messi of Argentina versus Neymar of Brazil.

For Messi, the game is a chance to win a major trophy for his country after many years of success at club level with Barcelona. The playmaker has won 10 La Liga titles and four Champions League trophies, but never anything for the senior national team.

The six-time Ballon d’Or winner’s only success with Argentina came in the form of a gold medal at the 2008 Beijing Olympics. Argentina has not won the Copa America since 1993.

Neymar, meanwhile, was a former teammate of Messi’s at Barcelona and now with PSG. He is looking to seal a first major success with his country as well after conquering the gold medal at the 2016 Rio Games.
