The results that could dump Argentina out of the Copa América

Argentina are still alive at the Copa América, but even a win in their final group game against Qatar may not be enough. If a certain series of results pan out, the 'Albiceleste' could be knocked out at the group stages.

Argentina had the opportunity to decide their own Copa América future on Wednesday, but Lionel Scaloni's side couldn't get the job done against Paraguay.

The 'Albiceleste' drew level against the 'Albirroja' thanks to Lionel Messi's penalty, but it was only enough for a draw. Now, with one point to their name, Argentina are on the verge of a crisis, and they must win against Qatar to have any hopes of progressing to the knockout rounds.

The stakes are high and Argentina have no room for error. However, even if they do beat the Asian side on Sunday, they wouldn't have their place in the quarter finals guaranteed.

What must happen for this catastrophe to occur? Well, three results have to go against Argentina: a draw between Brazil and Peru, a victory for Venezuela against Bolivia and all three teams in group C having six points.

Furthermore, Argentina will be watching closely to see what happens in the final fixtures of this round, as Japan face Uruguay and Ecuador meet Chile.
