Reds learn Copa America fate

New signing Gabriel Heinze went up against midfielder Kleberson in the 2004 showdown between Argentina and Brazil.

The Selecao won that game, and the rematch, played in 2007, when Heinze started alongside Carlos Tevez, whose arrival at Old Trafford was imminent.

Argentina also experienced back-to-back defeats in the 2015 and 2016 finals, with Marcos Rojo appearing in both games – he was sent off in the first half of the latter.

Angel Di Maria played in 2015 while still contracted to United, while Sergio Romero was 12 months into his six-year spell when the Albiceleste once again lost on penalties to Chile in 2016.
