Ethernity is proud to present the Argentine Football Association (AFA) Icons collection commemorating this first historic match, the “Finalissima,” a cross-continental match between the winners of the Euro Cup, Italy, and Copa America: Argentina.
Ethernity first brought the Copa America finals to life and continued the legacy of the Argentine National Team in its push for international titles in 2021 & 2022. The AFA Icons NFT collection will drop on May 31, 2022 at 12 pm EST.
The match happens June 1 at London’s long-standing Wembley Stadium – harkening back to a classic 1990 World Cup semi-final between then 1986 World Cup Winners Argentina, and hometown favorites Italy, where the match was being played in Naples; ironically Diego Maradona’s home club team.
The two other stars in the first piece, Argentine titans in their own right, accompany the legendary Maradona; Claudio Caniggia who scored the lone goal to send the game to extra time, and Sergio Goycochea, the goalkeeper who famously stopped two penalty kicks to ultimately win the match and make fútbol history are commemorated with Ethernity’s latest NFT drop.
The second piece depicts the venerable Lionel Messi along with striker Lautaro Martinez, whose club team is Italy’s Serie A’s AC Milan, and midfielder Rodrigo De Paul. The trio helped raise Argentina to win the Copa America in 2021 and is now on the road to the World Cup in Qatar in 2022.
This match carries special significance in Argentina’s storied World Cup history – and will continue to live on minted on the blockchain with Ethernity.
One buyer of these NFTs will be entered into a raffle to win a signed jersey using Ethernity’s Chainlink VRF randomizer. Plus, all buyers of this collection will receive access to AFA’snext NFT drop leading up to the mecca of soccer’s international tournament this coming fall.
