The buzz had been floating in the air for a long time. This is not the first time that the idea of confronting the Euro winning team and the Copa America winning team has come. In the end the thought is seeing the light of day.
European football’s governing body UEFA and South American football’s governing body Conmebol announced in a statement on Wednesday that this year’s Copa America winners Argentina and Euros winners Italy will meet on June 1 next year. Venue of the match: Wembley Stadium in London.
The match also has a name – Finalismo. What is the meaning of this word in Italian? Final!
Messi’s Argentina vs. Kiellini-Bonucci-Insiniade Italy is a battle to bring water to the pockets of football fans! Conmebol and UEFA made a policy decision last September to host the match.
The decision, however, was seen as a weapon against FIFA’s new plan. The governing body of world football wants to bring the World Cup to market every two years instead of every four years, but most countries in Europe and South America oppose this decision. UEFA and Conmebol have objected to this, as well as the decision to hold the match last September.
When and where it will be, he has decided today. At the time of the announcement, UEFA President Alexander Seferin said: “The history of UEFA and Conmebol standing side by side is very old. Which we’ve seen over the years at the Artemio Franchise Trophy or the InterToto Cup. We are proud to announce that we are about to launch another trophy with national teams that will delight football fans around the world. “
For now, UEFA and Conmebol have signed a memorandum of understanding until 2026. This means that after the match next June, the two teams that won the Copa and Euro have agreed to host this inter-continental tournament twice more for now.
Italy and Argentina lost to the hosts in the final on their way to the title last July. Messi defeated Neymar’s Brazil in the final of the Copa America at the Maracana Stadium in Brazil on the morning of July 11, Bangladesh time.
Italy beat England in the Euro final at Wembley Stadium in London on the night of July 11 to clinch the title.
