A meeting which will also serve as the last test of preparation before the start of the World Cup (November 20), for Lionel Scaloni’s proteges.
It would be Manchester City striker Julian Alvarez (22) who would replace Messi in the event of a package. As a reminder, Argentina had already played a first friendly match against Honduras during the current truce. The Argentinians had won with the score of 3-0, thanks in particular to an XXL performance of their genius.

In a press conference, the Pulga explained his recent good performances: “I feel good, I had a bad time before where I never managed to find myself. This year, it’s different, I arrived more at ease at the club, in the locker room and in the game. I feel very good and I enjoyed myself again“. Argentina just has to cross its fingers that it keeps this level until Qatar.
