When you ask a bunch of Bundesliga fans who's going to finish as the leading scorer at the 2016 Copa America, they naturally go for the man who set Leverkusen alight. That man is Chicharito.

Javier Hernandez is fresh off an impressive season for Bayer Leverkusen where he scored 26 all-competition goals and lead Roger Schmidt's side to yet another Champions League berth. The Mexican international has a very strong supporting cast alongside him and his resurgence this season could lead Mexico to a very deep finish in this competition.

However, the rest of the field could make things interesting. Will Luis Suarez ride his growth at Barcelona to a Golden Boot or will Messi or Higuain carry Argentina to the land of silverware after back-to-back Finals losses at World Cup 2014 and Copa America 2015? Or maybe West Ham's talismanic Enner Valencia will be the surprise package that pushes Ecuador deep in this competition?
