European champions Italy are facing a big summer – and joining Premier Sports is the only way for Azzurri fans in the UK and Ireland to see all five fixtures. Italy first play Lionel Messi’s Argentina in the Finalissima before a packed few weeks of competition in the UEFA Nations League, taking on Germany – twice – as well as Hungary and England. With Premier Sports showing more than 50 UEFA Nations League fixtures in June, the only way to see all of Italy’s summer international fixtures is to sign-up now.

Arguably the biggest international fixture of the summer, Italy vs. Argentina in the Finalissima is the first competitive meeting of the champions of Europe and South America in almost 30 years. The respective confederations – UEFA and CONMEBOL – agreed to the game as part of a closer working relationship that was established in early 2020. Italy’s Euro 2020 win over England at Wembley in July 2021, and Argentina’s Copa America success the same month, set the stage for two of world football’s most captivating national teams to meet a year later.

What is the Finalissima?

Roberto Mancini’s side may have missed out on World Cup 2022 but they take centre stage on the international scene before then with a showpiece game against Argentina kicking off the summer fixture list.

Italy meet the Copa America champions on June 1 at Wembley in what is officially known as the CONMEBOL-UEFA Cup of Champions – but colloquially known as the Finalissima, and previously named the Artemio Franchi Trophy after the former UEFA president.

The European and South American champions haven’t met in a one-off game like this since 1993, when Argentina – captained by Diego Maradona and featuring Diego Simeone and Gabriel Batistuta – beat Denmark. The only other time the fixture was held was in 1985, when Michel Platini’s France overcame Uruguay.

Mancini has named a number of Milan‘s Scudetto winners in the Italy squad for the Finalissima and UEFA Nations League games that follow, including midfielder Sandro Tonali. Veteran defender Giorgio Chiellini is also included as he prepares to leave Juventus, and Paris Saint-Germain’s Marco Verratti is picked as well.

Argentina boss Lionel Scaloni has picked a number of faces familiar to fans of Italian football, including Paulo Dybala, Lautaro Martinez and Joaquin Correa. Angel Di Maria, who is expected to join Juventus after his PSG contract expired, joins Messi as a veteran presence in the party.

When is the Finalissima?

The Finalissima takes place at Wembley on June 1. The match between Italy and Argentina kicks off at 19:45 local time.
