Born Offside takes a look at the most dangerous marksmen taking aim in Argentina next month…

South America is famed for it’s attacking play and with top strikers littered throughout the tournament the battle for the Golden boot is wide open.

The main contenders are obviously Lionel Messi, Carlos Tevez and Luis Suarez, while Brazil’s forward-line is yet to be finalised any two or three could line up from Neymar, Alexandre Pato, Leandro Damiao and Robinho.

But under the radar come Colombian duo Hugo Rodellega and the brilliant Falcao, Venezuelan Salomon Rondon was in fine form for Malaga last season and Lucas Barrios will hope to fire Paraguay through the tournament.

While Ecuador hitman Chucho Benitez, Chile’s Humberto Suazo and Peruvian Paolo Guerrero are also in the hunt.

Who is your pick for the Copa America Golden Boot?
