Argentina and Italy had a face-off on June 1st based on the agreement between UEFA and CONMEBOL. This competition between European and South American giants is termed Finalissima. Italy defeated England in Euro 2020 final last year on penalties. On the other hand, Argentina defeated Brazil 1-0 in the Copa America final staged last year. Finalissima 2022 ended with Argentina emerging as champions, winning the second international trophy under Lionel Messi.

RUSH OF LUCK FOR MESSI

The past couple of years has been good for star footballer Lionel Messi. His club, PSG, hasn’t got much success, but his international luck with Argentina has found the groove. Last year in Copa America, Argentina ended 18-year international trophy doubt by defeating Brazil in the finals under Lionel Messi. On Wednesday, a 3-0 victory over Italy in Finalissima meant a second international trophy for South American champions. With two international trophies now to his name, Lionel Messi has equalled his cabinet with that of Cristiano Ronaldo.

FINALISSIMA 2022 STORY

Finalissima 2022 at Wembley Stadium London was not a close contest. Safe to say Argentina thrashed Italy; all ends out. An assist by Messi to striker Martinez ensured the first goal for the Argentines at the 28-minute mark. About 17 minutes later, Angel Di Maria cashed on an assist from Martinez, doubling the lead. The third goal came out of Dybala’s foot, a substitute in the second half. The loss was painful for Italy, which was already in shackles. With a win at Euro last year, the dip in form has been inevitable for the 2006 world champions. This wonderful football nation will miss its second consecutive world cup this year. Meanwhile, Messi and company are over the moon about their two trophies and aiming to make it three later this year in Qatar. Well, that is what time will tell, but the men in blue and white have picked up at the right time.
