It's been a long wait but it proved to be worth it. Copa America 2021 has begun after a year of delay and the knockout stages led us to the grand final this weekend. For the second straight edition, the South American champions will be decided in Brazil, who will seek a back-to-back title at home.

The hosts want to retain their crown from 2019 and they look in great form to do so. Tité's team seems to be the strongest one on the continent and it has been unstoppable in their quest for a second-straight title so far.

However, La Verde-amarela will face a huge challenger as Argentina are eager to end a long drought. The soccer community couldn't be more hyped as these two South American giants will clash to add one more Copa America trophy to their cabinet.

When and where the Copa America 2021 Final will be held

The tournament's deciding game will take place in the same venue as in 2019. The Copa America 2021 final between Brazil and Argentina will be played at Maracana Stadium in Río de Janeiro on Saturday, July 10, at 8 PM (ET). There, Brazil secured their ninth title after beating Peru 3-1 two years ago.

It will be the only game of the competition to be played at this iconic stadium, which has a long history of hosting high-profile events and memorable matches. The Maracana is also famously known for having attendances of over 100,000 spectators multiple times throughout history.

The stage for the Copa America final couldn't be better, as this venue has a fascinating background of unforgettable games and any player would dream of lifting a trophy there.
