Argentina and Qatar will meet on Sunday for their third games of the group stage of Copa America 2019. Surprisingly the Argentinias are on the last 4th place in group B with just one point after two matches, while Qatar have the same point tally, but better goal balance and are sitting 3rd. If Argentina fail to win it will be the end of another humiliating tournament for Lionel Messi with the national team shirt.
