Before the FIFA international schedule, there was not much competition in friendly matches. UEFA launched the League of Nations in 2016 to increase the fighting. Match after match was played, again the heat of the tournament. UEFA is organizing this tournament with 55 members for two consecutive years.
Portugal was the champion in the first edition and France in the next edition. What if Brazil-Argentina also competed in the League of Nations with France, Portugal, Italy, Germany!
Brazil-Argentina will play in the European Nations League
Gbiniu Boniek, vice-president of the European Football Regulatory Commission (UEFA) and legendary Polish footballer, confirmed the news. The League of Nations will start in a new version from 2024.
From the 2024 edition, 10 members of the South American Football Confederation (Conmebol) will take part in the tournament. In other words, not only Brazil and Argentina, but also teams like Uruguay, Colombia, Chile, Paraguay will compete with European teams in the League of Nations.
“From 2024, Conmebol will join the League of Nations,” Boniyek told Polish online sports news outlet Mekziki. However, we do not know the source yet. It is unknown at this time what he will do after leaving the post. We have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) for the cooperation of UEFA and Conmebol. These teams will play in the League of Nations from 2024. ‘
Boniak said six South American teams would join League A. The remaining 4 teams will join League B. The games are supposed to be in Europe.
However, a spokesman for UEFA told AFP about the possibility of Latin teams playing in the League of Nations. The possibility of playing in the League of Nations jointly is being examined. However, nothing has been finalized yet, no decision has been taken. ‘
There is no doubt that the heart of UEFA and Conmebol will grow when the South American teams leave the League of Nations. The two sides signed a memorandum of understanding last week, aimed at “enhancing co-operation” and promoting football “beyond their own geographical boundaries”.
That is the goal of the match between the Copa America and the Euro champions. Current Copa America champions Argentina and Euro champions Italy will face off in the first edition in June 2022. The match will be played at Wembley Stadium in London.
UEFA and Conmebol have long opposed FIFA’s campaign to host the World Cup for two consecutive years. FIFA will hold a global meeting on the future of football next Monday. There will be discussions on the possibility of hosting the World Cup for two consecutive years.
Before that, the news of Latin teams including Brazil-Argentina-Uruguay joining the League of Nations will make FIFA think.
