share on:

Copa America Centenario champions, Chile could face the winner of the Euro 2016, according to CONMEBOL president Alejandro Dominguez.

The South American nation secured back-to-back Copa titles, after beating Argentina again, at the special edition held in the USA.

Even though Chile’s 2015 success has qualified them for the 2017 Confederations Cup. Dominguez confirmed a proposal was submitted to UEFA for a match against the European champions.

However the game is subject to the schedule of both nations, with Chile set for World Cup qualifiers in the coming months.

“We have received a positive response from UEFA about a match between the Copa America and Euro champions,” Dominguez posted via his official Twitter account.

“We will study a viable date to set.”
The match will serve as a prelude to the Artemio Franchi Trophy, which is set to make its return in 2018.

The tournament has been held twice before (1985, 1993) between the winners of the Copa and Euros.
