Italy v Argentina live stream, Wednesday 1 June, 7.45pm BST

Looking for a Italy v Argentina live stream? We've got you covered with our handy guide.

The European and South American champions, Italy and Argentina, go head-to-head at Wembley on Wednesday night in a clash branded the ‘Finalissima’.

For the Azzurri, it marks a return to the scene of their Euro 2020 final triumph against England last summer, but Roberto Mancini’s side have suffered humiliation since then.

They went from the high of their second European Championship victory to the pain of a second consecutive failure to qualify for the World Cup in the space of eight months, after losing to North Macedonia in the March play-offs.

But Mancini has stuck by his players and could now bring in some young blood like Alessandro Bastoni, Sandro Tonali, Nicolo Zaniolo or Gianluca Scamacca.

Although youth is the path to a brighter future, the clash with Argentina will be all about a veteran for Italy, as the Finalissima will be captain Giorgio Chiellini’s final game for his country.

They will be hoping the 37-year-old can bow out on a high, but it won’t be easy against Lionel Scaloni’s star-studded Argentina side.

The Albiceleste clinched the Copa America last summer by beating Brazil in the final, their first trophy since 1993 and one that ended the great Lionel Messi’s long and painful wait for international silverware.

Argentina followed that up by coasting to World Cup qualification, finishing second in South American qualifying behind Brazil, but without losing a game.

There will be no extra time in the Finalissima, so if the score is still level at full-time, it will go straight to a penalty shoot-out.

Kick-off is at 7.45pm BST on Wednesday 1 June, and the game is being broadcast live by Premier Sports 1. See below for international broadcast options.

VPN guide

Use a VPN to watch the Finalissima from outside your country

If you’re out of the country for a round of Premier League fixtures, then annoyingly your domestic on-demand services won’t work – the broadcaster knows where you are because of your IP address (boo!). You'll be blocked from watching it, which is not ideal if you’ve paid up for a subscription and still want to catch the action without resorting to illegal feeds you’ve found on Reddit.

But assistance is on hand. To get around that, all you have to do is get a Virtual Private Network (VPN), assuming it complies with your broadcaster’s T&Cs. A VPN creates a private connection between your device and t'internet, meaning the service can’t work out where you are and won't automatically block the service you've paid for. All the info going between is entirely encrypted – and that's a result.

There are plenty of good-value options out there, including:
