It has already been ESPN confirmed that the first “Finalissima” between the winners of the UEFA Euro 2020 champions and Copa America 2021 champions will be held at a stadium in London on June 1, 2022, when Italy faces Argentina.
“This is the last UEFA Nations League this summer,” Boniek, the former head of the Polish FA, said in an interview with Meczyki. “We had a meeting with CONMEBOL, a federation of South American countries, From 2024, teams from this continent will join the competition.
“What will it be like? We are still working on it. The national team program is limited so that you do not mix it up too much. ”
Boniek has indicated that six of South America’s top-ranked countries – Argentina, Brazil, and possibly Colombia, Chile, Peru, and Uruguay – will be added to League A of the UEFA Nations League. That will put an end to tough matches compared to Spain, Germany, England, and France, which South American countries have not been able to play since the Nations League replaced international friendly matches.
Four others – Bolivia, Ecuador, Paraguay, and Venezuela – will join League B.
It is not yet clear how UEFA plans to organize it, as that will see 22 countries in League A and 20 in League B, while both hold 16 teams to form four national teams. All games must take place in Europe to reduce travel.
FIFA has not yet launched an international tournament since 2024 but wants to host the World Cup every two years, with continental competitions like the Euro in between. UEFA and CONMEBOL have already announced their opposition to the plan, as do the major European leagues, and instead pushed for co-operation in their tournament using the days FIFA would like to use in their own event.
Creating what many would consider a minor World Cup – every World Cup winner from Europe or South America – would put pressure on FIFA, which also wants to build its own League of Nations. global.
