The words of the selectors

Roberto Mancini, Italy
It will be a good match, the first of a long series. This match will gain in importance, it would be good to be the first winners.

It’s great to play an Italy-Argentina, a classic in world football. It will also be a tribute for many players. It will be a beautiful match, rich in emotions. This game will mark the end of a cycle, not that 15 or 20 players will leave the group, but from Wednesday we will include young players to gauge them and see if we can count on them for the future.

Lionel Scaloni, Argentina
When I was a player, I liked playing in stadiums like these and against these kinds of opponents. We would prefer (to play against European teams) more often. (Our invincibility is]just a number, just a statistic and it doesn’t really matter to us. The most important thing is knowing what we want, where we want to go. We have to enjoy the moment and that experience. When you play in the Argentine shirt, every game counts. And if we can win a trophy, so much the better.

In case of a tie

The Finalissima is played over one match and 90 minutes. There is no overtime, so in the event of a tie at the end of regulation time, the two teams go directly to a penalty shootout.

Argentina won their 2021 Copa América semi-final against Colombia on penalties, Emiliano Martínez made three saves in that session, while Italy became the first team to win two penalty shootouts in a single UEFA European Championship when they eliminated Spain and England in the semi-finals and final respectively to win EURO 2020.
