Argentina defeats Italy in the battle of the continental champions

Argentina cruised to a 3-0 win over Italy on Wednesday night at Wembley as the reigning America Cup The champions prevailed over the kings of Euro 2020 in impressive fashion. The team inspired by Lionel Messi with Wednesday’s feat has now won its second international trophy in the space of 12 months with the Finalissima 2022 silver medal. Inter striker Lautaro Martínez scored one and also provided an assist for Ángel Di María before Paulo Dybala’s late goal sealed Argentina’s comfortable win over Italy in the 2022 Finalissima at Wembley Stadium. Messi showed that he is not a spent force when he provided the lavish assist to striker Lautaro Martínez two minutes before the half-hour mark. Martinez, in turn, provided a suitably elegant finish as he blasted past Messi’s PSG teammate Gianluigi Donnarumma. Argentina were firmly in cruise control and in first-half stoppage time doubled their lead, with Martinez this time as provider. The Inter striker provided the assist for Di Maria, whose burst of pace saw him past Giorgio Chiellini before providing a marvelous finish. Lionel Messi celebrates with Ángel Di María as they beat Italy as the reigning Copa América champions prevailed over the Euro 2020 kings in impressive fashion. After the break, Argentina continued to assert their authority and it was a matter of time before they scored the third goal. Substitute Dybala added a well-deserved third place finish after Messi’s shot was blocked. Wednesday’s tie at Wembley was eagerly anticipated as it pitted the European champions against the reigning South American kings. This was the third edition of the showcase between the defending European and South American champions, won by France in 1985 and Argentina in 1993. What was supposed to be a special night for Giorgio Chiellini, who was making his 117th and final appearance for Italy, was ruined by the disappointing defeat. Chiellini was returning to Wembley Stadium less than a year after lifting the EURO 2020 trophy, but unlike the last time he was all smiles, this time he showed a different figure. More than 90,000 fans were in the stadium to watch the battle of champions with a large majority openly supporting the National Team, which is undefeated in 32 games, three full calendar years.
