Copa America 2015 Top 5 Contenders of Golden Boot
Are you talking about the best footballer of the competition? Well it is natural that you will include Messi in this list. The Argentine is back to his form as we have seen his dominant performance in past games for club and country. The 2014 World Cup golden ball winner and vice World Cup champion is hungry for the first major title for his nation.
He enjoyed yet another great season at Barcelona after scoring back to back incredible goals in all competition. In La Liga, Messi have scored 40 goals in 36 games at the rate of one goal per 80 minutes. He is just two goals away from Cristiano Ronaldo who scored 42 goals in La Liga 2014–15. Looking on his stats, Messi is one of those contenders who can win the golden boot award of Copa America 2015.
Here comes another player from same nation. The leading goal scorer of Premier League 2014–15 failed to win title for Manchester City, but he will be remembered for years because of his brilliant performance. He will join Messi but he could give a tough competition to Lionel Messi in winning the golden boot trophy of this South American football tournament.
After playing 31 games at Manchester City, Sergio Aguero scored 25 times in Premier League. He also scored six goals in seven Champions League games and also netted one goal for Argentina this season. Aguero must already have started visiting the nightmares of Paraguayans against who Argentina will play the first game of Copa America 2015.

Friends of Yesterday will be rivals tomorrow as Neymar will try to give everything to win Copa America after disappointment in Brazil World Cup. He could be facing his Barca team mate Lionel Messi which could be another great moment for both footballers.
Neymar will have his shot at retribution with Juan Zuniga; mano a mano as is custom in South America. His serious injury at the back formed him to miss the semi final against Brazil in World Cup, but that wounded him too deep and made him more greedy to win another trophy for Brazil.
Barca forwards have dominated this list as we have another world class footballer who could win Golden boot award at the Copa America 2015. Despite stumbling start at Barcelona, Luis Suarez returned to his class this year. He is enjoying this season at Barcelona, scoring goals and providing assists.
But this time, he will be playing along side Edinson Cavani, facing Lionel Messi and Neymar in the competition. The best player of Copa America 2011 is ready to make strong impact one more time. In 2011, Luis Suarez helped his team-mates to add 15th Copa America title who can do anything thing to defend this title.
Last but not the least. One player who is becoming the nightmares of rivals is Carlos Tevez. Having great season with Juventus, Carlos Tevez is the real deal, as we observed how the Juventus forward dealt Real Madrid a mortal blow in the Champions League semi final.
Scoring 20 goals in Serie A, nine goals in Champions League, 2 goals in Supercopa Italiana, Tevez is eyeing to add more goals for Argentina. It will be interesting to see where his coach Gerardo Martino deploys Tevez in the strong attack line-up of Argentina.
