ATLANTA, GEORGIA—Football fans around the world will be in for a treat in 2022.
According to reports, European Championship winners Italy will face Copa America winners Argentina in June 2022.
The playing venue of the dream match-up is still being planned but UEFA and their South American counterparts CONMEBOL already confirmed it.
UEFA considered the holding of the match as an “expansion of the cooperation” between the two organizations.
“The organising of this match is part of the expansion of the cooperation between UEFA and CONMEBOL, which notably includes women’s football, futsal and youth categories, the exchange of referees, as well as technical training schemes,” UEFA said.
The dream match will reportedly be called ‘Finalissima.’
Argentina Football Association (AFA) president Claudio Tapia had said in July that talks were ongoing for a match between the two to be held in Naples as a tribute to Diego Maradona.
