Italy are the new champions of European Football while Argentina are the champions of South America. It took both teams a very long period of time to get to where they are now. Argentina, carried by captain, Leo Messi won the Copa America for the first time in 28 years, while Italy won the Euros after going for a total of 34 matches unbeaten.
As of today, UEFA and CONMEBOL are in advanced talks for a match between the new European and South American champions. The match will be taking place later this year though the date is unannounced as it stands.
Italy vs. Argentina would be played in Naples in honor of Argentina national team former player and coach, Diego Armando Maradona. It wil be called the 'Maradona Super Cup'. It is also said that it will continue beyond this year's winners of their respective continental tournaments.
