Australia to face Argentina, Bolivia, Chile, Paraguay, Uruguay in 2020 Copa America

Argentina's final group match will be against Bolivia on June 30 at La Plata stadium.

That means Australia will play their five group stages matches in Argentina against the two-time World Cup champions, Uruguay, Chile, Bolivia and Paraguay.

While the draw took place on Tuesday, the nations already knew nearly all of their opponents with teams split into zones for next year's tournament in Argentina and Colombia.

Eight teams will qualify for the quarter-finals with the final to place on 12 July in Barranquilla, Colombia.

The Selecao beat Peru 3-1 in the 2019 Copa America final having also seen off Argentina and Paraguay on their way to the decider.

In Group A, co-hosts Argentina are joined by several other South American powerhouses.

Messi will be a star attraction for 14-time winners Argentina, who finished third at this year's Copa America, and he will enter the tournament as the reigning men's Ballon d'Or victor, an award he has claimed on a record six occasions.

Qatar played in the Copa America 2019 and despite losing two of their three matches, proved a tough team, ensuring that they won't be a surprise package in their second appearance in the upcoming matches in 2020.

Notably, Argentina last won the Copa America title in 1993 and since then they have finished as runners up four times in 2004, 2007, 2015 and 2016.

Asian Cup holders Qatar have been drawn in Group B and will face co-hosts Colombia, defending champions Brazil, Ecuador, Peru and Venezuela.
