Madness in London! More than 60 thousand Argentines will take over Wembley for the “Finalissima” against Italy

The Argentines recovered the illusion of seeing their team again after winning the Copa América in Brazil against Canarinha and also for stringing together a streak of 31 games without losing. Argentina want to maintain the winning series this Wednesday in the Finalissima 2022 against Italy.

And they will play in London as if they were at home. The event’s organizers reported that 90,000 tickets were sold, which means 100% of the capacity, and 60,000 fans are identified as Argentines. With this, the Albiceleste tide is assured in the English capital.

Only 5 thousand Italians and the rest are of different nationalities. The Italian fans are justified because the Azzurra is out of the Qatar 2022 World Cup, as happened in 2018. The disappointment is great and they were not going to make a massive expense to travel to London.

The madness of the Argentine fans had already manifested itself weeks ago, when FIFA reported on the countries that had made the most requests to purchase tickets for the World Cup: Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Argentina, Brazil, USA, France, England and Mexico, in that order of requests.

The trophy that Argentina wants

After a long drought without titles, Argentina won the Copa América 2021 and now has the opportunity to lift a new trophy revived by UEFA and Conmebol, previously called Copa Artemio Franchi and now Finalissima.

The trophy has a weight of 9.5 kilos and a height of 45 centimeters. It was made of brass and plated in silver. It has the names of France and Argentina at the base for having won the title in 1985 and 1993.

“Most of the trophy maintains its original appearance from when it was manufactured before the first edition in 1985, which pitted France against Uruguay in Paris” pointed out Conmebol.
