The official 26-player rosters for all 16 national teams competing in CONMEBOL Copa America USA 2024 were announced on Sunday with the highly anticipated tournament set to be played from June 20 to July 14 in 14 stadiums across the United States.

Canada's roster is headlined by the two most valuable players in the Concacaf region with Alphonso Davies (Bayern Munich) and Jonathan David (LOSC Lille) among several key contributors playing for top clubs in Europe, including Stephen Eustáquio (FC Porto), Alistair Johnston (Celtic FC) and Tajon Buchanan (Inter Milan).

After competing in the 2022 FIFA World Cup and reaching the 2022-23 Concacaf Nations League Final, Canada will play in Copa America for the first time and are currently 49th in the FIFA rankings.

Ranked 32nd in the FIFA rankings. Peru has a roster led by captain Paolo Guerrero who won Copa Sudamericana with LDU Quito last year. The 40-year-old striker has the most Copa America goals of any active player -- scoring in five different editions of the competition and emerging as the top scorer in 2011, 2015 and 2019 -- and he has the most goals in Peru national team history, scoring in the 2018 FIFA World Cup and 2019 Copa America Final.
