The United States, with odds of +1400, will take on some of the world’s best soccer teams when it hosts Copa America this summer. This tournament will provide manager Gregg Berhalter with an ideal opportunity to gauge the strength of his squad as he prepares for the 2026 World Cup. His players just won the CONCACAF Nations League in March, and it will be interesting to see how they fare against elite opposition at the 2024 Copa America.

USMNT’s odds to win the 2024 Copa America

Top sportsbooks are offering odds of on the USMNT to win Copa America. Only five teams are ahead of the US in futures odds: Argentina, Brazil, Uruguay, Colombia, and Mexico. Argentina is the reigning world champion, while Brazil has world-class players in every department, so it is easy to see why they are the favorites to win this tournament.

However, the USMNT will be surging with momentum after beating Mexico 2-0 in the Nations League final on March 24. The team is not yet on the same level as Argentina or Brazil, but it is full of promising young players. Captain Christian Pulisic looks back to his best at AC Milan, while a midfield trio of Gio Reyna, Tyler Adams, and Weston McKennie looks strong, so the US could be a dark horse at this tournament.

USA’s potential path to victory

The sportsbooks have Uruguay as the heavy favorite to win Group C, but they expect the US to finish second. You can find odds of on the US to qualify for the quarterfinals.

If the USMNT finishes second in Group C, it will face the winner of Group D in the quarters. Brazil is the favorite to win Group D. The US would be the clear underdog against a star-studded Brazilian team, but if it were to prevail, it could face Uruguay or Colombia in the semifinals. If the USMNT reaches the final, its most likely opponent would be Argentina (Group A), the reigning champion.

USMNT group stage fixtures

The US will benefit from strong home support at this tournament. The team will begin its campaign at AT&T Stadium, the home of the Dallas Cowboys, and its next group stage games will take place at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta and Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City.

Pivotal player

Christian Pulisic is undoubtedly the star player for Team USA. He has built up a wealth of experience during eight years in Europe, representing Borussia Dortmund, Chelsea, and AC Milan, so he will be undaunted by the prospect of facing elite South American opponents.

He will start on the left of the USA’s attacking triumvirate, and he has the pace, dribbling ability, and technical prowess to unlock any defense. The left flank will be vital for the USMNT at this tournament, with Gio Reyna and Antonee Robinson overlapping Pulisic, and that trio could make life difficult for any opposing right-backs.

How has the US performed in past Copa America tournaments?

This is just the fifth time that the US has received an invite to compete at Copa America. The tournament features the top 10 teams from South America, plus six invited teams from around the world.

The US crashed out in the group stage in 1993, finished fourth in 1995, fell at the group stage in 2007, and ended up fourth again in 2016. However, the team is arguably stronger now than it has ever been.

Christian Pulisic, Gio Reyna, Weston McKennie, Yunus Musah, Folarin Balogun, Sergiño Dest, Malik Tillman, and Timothy Weah all play for prestigious clubs in Europe. These youngsters should peak in time for the 2026 World Cup, which the US is co-hosting with Canada and Mexico, but they will also be dangerous this summer.

USA: Copa America FAQ

How did the US qualify for Copa America?

The US officially qualified for Copa America after winning its COCACAF Nations League quarterfinal clash with Trinidad and Tobago last year. It won 4-2 on aggregate, despite losing the second leg 2-1 in Port of Spain, and it then went on to beat Jamaica in the semifinals and Panama in the final.

Will Gio Reyna play for the US at Copa America?

Yes, Gio Reyna is scheduled to represent the US at Copa America. Reyna had a high-profile altercation with manager Gregg Berhalter in 2022, but he is now back on the team. He was named man of the match in the 2023 and 2024 CONCACAF Nations League finals, so Berhalter cannot really afford to leave him out if he is fit.

Where is the Copa America final taking place?

The Copa America final will be at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami at 8 p.m. ET on July 14.

Why is the US hosting Copa America?

Ecuador was initially scheduled to host Copa America this summer, but it pulled out in November 2022, citing economic and security concerns, plus a lack of viable stadiums. The US was chosen to replace Ecuador. It is co-hosting the 2026 World Cup with Mexico and Canada, so this tournament will help it prepare for that showpiece event.
