Italy, the reigning Euro 2020 champions, will face Argentina, the Copa America 2021 winners, in the Finalissima 2022 at the Wembley Stadium in London, on Wednesday.
In the previous two occasions winners from Europe and South America met, France beat Uruguay 2-0 in Paris in 1985. In the second edition, Argentina downed Denmark on penalties in Mar del Plata in 1993. This is the first time this fixture will be played at a neutral venue.
After defeating England on penalties in the Euro finals, Azzurri failed to make the 2022 World Cup, while La Albiceleste won the Copa America after edging Brazil to win the Copa American title. However, Argentina have qualified for the World Cup, unlike Italy.
