Copa-Euro showdown proposed

South American football's governing body has proposed a one-off match between the winners of the Copa America Centenario and Euro 2016 later this year, officials confirmed Friday.

Alejandro Dominguez, the president of CONMEBOL, told reporters at a press conference an invitation to UEFA had been made to stage the inter-continental showdown.

"We have challenged UEFA to play one game this year, bringing together the winners of the Copa America Centenario and the winners of the Euro 2016," Dominguez said.

"We are waiting for that answer. They are studying our offer," he added.

No date for the possible match was given.

The match would be staged as part of events to mark the Copa America's centenary, officials said.

Dominguez's comments came as Chile and Argentina prepare to face each other in Sunday's Copa America final in East Rutherford, New Jersey.

The game marks the conclusion of the special edition of the Copa America.
