How Teams Eligible
Angel Di Maria scored the decisive goal against Brazil in the CONMEBOL Copa America 2021 final, enabling Argentina to win their first major championship in nearly 30 years (28 years to be precise). Lionel Messi finally won a trophy with the national team after they tied the record for most continental championships with their 15th.
Argentina can now defend the Finalissima, also known as the Artemio Franchi Cup or the European/South American Nations Cup, after 29 years. In 1993, the Albiceleste defeated Denmark on penalties at home (Mar del Plata) to win the previous edition. France won the inaugural tournament in 1985 after defeating Uruguay 2-0 in Paris.
Argentina, who were in Spain for training, have already named a 29-man squad, which includes Lionel Messi, Angel Di Maria, Lautaro Martinez, etc. The match against the reigning European champions will undoubtedly serve as preparation for Lionel Scaloni’s squad prior to the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
In contrast, Italy has failed miserably to qualify for the subsequent football World Cups. A victory against Argentina for the four-time world champions would mitigate the disappointment of missing the flight to Qatar. Italy will make its debut in the CONMEBOL–UEFA Cup of Champions. Azzurri earned the right to represent Europe by winning the UEFA Euro 2020 final against England on penalties.
Roberto Mancini initially selected 45 players for the match, including the retiring Giorgio Chiellini as captain. Tuesday saw the reduction to thirty men. Other notable stars in the squad are Lorenzo Insigne, Marco Verratti, Gianluigi Donnarumma, etc. But they are without Domenico Berardi, Andrea Pinamonti, Federico Chiesa, Ciro Immobile, Gaetano Castrovilli and Rafael Toloi.
There will be no overtime following the conclusion of the regulation period. If scores are tied, the winner will be determined by penalty kicks. A team may list a maximum of 12 substitutes, but only five may be used during play.
