The winners of Euro 2020 Italy will face the Copa America champion Argentina 2021 in the Finalissima at Wembley Stadium on Wednesday. It is a revival of the CONMEBOL-UEFA Cup of Champions – also known as the European/South American Nations Cup and the Artemio Franchi Cup – this time renamed Finalissima.
The match has only been played twice before in history, the last taking place in 1993 when Argentina faced Denmark. Italy’s last match with Argentina was a friendly in 2018 and they lost 2-0.
In 1985, France defeated Uruguay 2-0 at the Parc des Princes in Paris, while eight years later, in Mar del Plata, Argentina defeated Denmark 5-4 in a penalty shoot-out after a 1-1 draw in 120 minutes. Despite winning Euro 2020 at Wembley against host nation England, Italy failed to qualify for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
