The Copa America, one of the world's oldest tournaments, has kicked off with the opening match between Argentina and Bolivia.

Argentina is the most successful team in this Latin American tournament with 14 wins, but it has struggled in recent years.

With Lionel Messi, FIFA world player of the year, in the side, the country hopes to end its title drought since it won Olympics medal at Beijing in 2008.
