Wembley have been confirmed as host for first ‘Finalissima’ fixture since 1993. European football’s governing body Uefa and South American counterparts Conmebol agreed last year to play three editions of the intercontinental match. London was confirmed as the host city in December and Uefa now says the national stadium will be the venue. It will be the first time the fixture has been played since 1993.
Diego Maradona played for 1991 Copa America winners Argentina in that match, the South Americans beating surprise Euro 92 champions Denmark on penalties.
This year’s match will see Italy return to the stadium where they beat England to win the European title last year, while Argentina won the latest South American crown after beating Brazil in the final in Rio in June 2021.
