Football fans celebrated a Super Sunday as the world witnessed two big sporting showdowns take place within a span of 24 hours. First Argentina defeated Brazil in the Copa America final as Lionel Messi lifted his first major international trophy. Then, Italy edged favourites England in a penalty shootout at Wembley to be crowned Euro 2020 winners. But, how about a Super Cup battle between Argentina and Italy?
As per Barca Blaugranes, CONMEBOL, South America’s footballing body, has requested its European counterpart, UEFA, to hold a one-off Super Cup match between the winners of this year’s Copa America and European Championship. While UEFA hasn’t yet commented on the matter, such a match-up wouldn’t be a first in the history of international football.
Both the Copa America 2021 and Euro 2020 campaigns were special. While it was the first time ever that Messi had won an international trophy wearing the Argentina shirt, Italy had even failed to qualify in the 2018 FIFA World Cup.
Messi ended the Copa America campaign as the player with the most number of goals and assists. He was deservedly named the Player of the tournament, having played the most influential role in the team’s triumph.
