Copa America 2024

The Copa America 2024 stands as South America's premier tournament in senior men's soccer, serving as the pinnacle for determining the continental champion. Originally named the South American Championship until 1967, it holds the distinction of being the oldest continental championship globally.

Chile Copa America journey traces back to the inaugural South American Championship in 1916, where they were one of the four national teams in participation. Despite initial struggles that saw them consistently finishing last in their first six appearances, the tide turned in 1926 when they secured their first match wins.

A significant milestone awaited Chile Copa America team for nearly a century before they clinched their inaugural continental title. The historic victory came in 2015 and was successfully defended at the Copa America Centenario in 2016.

Remarkably, both of Chile's triumphs in 2015 and 2016 came in thrilling fashion, with victories over Argentina in penalty shootouts. Intriguingly, despite their penalty successes, Chile has never defeated the Albiceleste in regular time throughout tournament history, having made 28 attempts at the time of these victories. The narrative of Chile's journey in the Copa America is a testament to perseverance and the eventual realization of long-awaited glory on the continental stage.

As of November 2023, Alexis Sánchez stands atop the list of all-time leading goal scorers for the Chile Copa America national football squad with an impressive tally of 51 goals throughout his career.
