Copa America : Can Argentina finally win another major tournament?

Argentina hope to end a trophy drought of almost two decades this month - when they meet Bolivia in the opening Copa America match at La Plata in Buenos Aires.

Argentine football fans have had to experience some major contrast over the last 20 years - from the highs of watching talents like Lionel Messi and Carlos Tevez - to the lows of the stunningly dire domestic football league.

On the positive side, Argentina has seen their U-23 side capture two consecutive Olympic gold medals.

On the negative side, the senior side struggled to qualify for last summer's World Cup in South Africa and then were flattened by Germany once they reached there.

What can we expect from Argentina this year? ...
The opening match against Bolivia may tell us.
