What had been commented in the football world a few weeks ago as a simple rumor was confirmed moments ago: the selections of Argentina and Italy, current champions of the Copa América and Eurocopa respectively, will be measured by the Euro America Cup, as reported by CONMEBOL on its website.
“CONMEBOL and UEFA have announced today the extension of their current cooperation, as well as the organization of a match between the winner of the CONMEBOL Copa América 2021, Argentina, and the winner of the Eurocup 2020, Italy, during the international window of June 2022 in a venue to be confirmed, “began the statement that was promoted by social networks.
“The organization of this match is part of the expansion of cooperation between CONMEBOL and UEFA, which includes especially women’s football, futsal and youth categories, the exchange of referees, as well as technical training programs,” he continued
“The agreement reached by both organizations currently covers three editions of this match between the respective continental winners, and also includes the opening of a joint office in London, which will be in charge of coordinating projects of common interest,” he added later.
“With this agreement, CONMEBOL and UEFA express their commitment to the development of football beyond their geographical areas, as a bridge that unites people, countries, continents and cultures. The CONMEBOL Council and the UEFA Executive Committee they also expressed their firm will to continue collaborating on other matters of mutual interest in the future, “the statement concluded.
It remains to confirm the stadium (it would be ideal to do it at the Diego Armando Maradona in Napoli, although in that case Italy would be local) and if the character of the match will be official, accumulating one more title, or if it will remain as a friendly. Interesting match for Lionel Scaloni’s team to face a top-level European team.
