Argentina and Italy will play at Wembley Stadium to decide who will win the Conmebol–UEFA Cup of Champions.
Due to FIFA’s new rules for the Club World Cup, the Confederations Cup, which was played by the champions of each conference plus the winner of the last World Cup and the host country, was officially canceled. This meant that the expected match between the UEFA champions and Conmebol champions could not happen.
This led to the Conmebol–UEFA Cup of Champions, also known as the Finalissima, which is good news for fans. The Conmebol champions, Argentina, who are also starting to think about the World Cup in Qatar this year, will play against the Euro champions, Italy. Italy was left out of the World Cup for the second year in a row and hopes to win this cup as a small consolation.
Italy vs. Argentina: Information on the Game
Date: June 1, 2022, a Wednesday
Time: 2:45 PM (ET)
Location: Wembley Stadium, in London, England
Argentina are the favorites because they are playing well right now and because they had a great qualifying round. Since Leonel Scaloni became the team’s coach, the Argentines have grown a lot. This has given them a better reputation than the sad one they had in Russia 2018.
Italy has just been let down again. They won’t be there for the second straight World Cup. They went the same way as Portugal, so it wasn’t out of the question that they could be eliminated by a rival as strong as Portugal. Yes, it was unthinkable that North Macedonia, not Portugal, was the one who got rid of them.
The Italians won’t be able to try again for the World Cup for another 4 years. Because they can’t play in Qatar, their only goal now is to win this Finalissima, and they will give it their all to do so.
