Italy and Argentina will meet on June 1 in London in a new clash between the winners of the Euros and the Copa America. This was announced on Wednesday by UEFA and Conmebol. The two Confederations had announced at the end of September that they were planning at least three editions of this clash between continental champions, but without specifying the exact date or the place.
Presented as a « finalissima » by UEFA, this match will therefore be held « In a London stadium », while the British capital will host “from the beginning of 2022” the new joint office intended to strengthen cooperation between the two structures.
Their goal is to develop football “beyond their geographical areas, as a bridge uniting people, countries, continents and cultures”, and get along “on other subjects of mutual interest”, they explained in September without further details.
