The newly crowned European champions England will take on Copa America winners Brazil in the inaugural women’s Finalissima.
Brazil sealed their fourth straight Copa America title and eighth continental crown in nine years with a 1-0 win against hosts Colombia at the weekend. Meanwhile, England secured a 2-1 extra-time win against Germany at Wembley Stadium on Sunday for their first major trophy.
A record 87,192 people turned out to watch England lift the Euro 2022 title at Wembley, a larger crowd than in any men’s or women’s Euros match to date.
The first-ever women’s Finalissima match will be played in Europe, with governing body UEFA yet to announce the date and venue for the encounter organized in cooperation with South American soccer’s governing body CONMEBOL.
This is the first time in history that women’s Finalissima is going to happen after men’s Finalissima. The first men’s Finalissima was won by Argentina, with Lionel Messi inspiring them to a 3-0 win over Euro winners Italy in London in June.
