World champion Argentina’s first opponent is Panama

The opponent for the next match has been decided but the venue and date have not been finalized yet. Argentinian sports newspaper TYC reported that the world champions will play between March 26 and 28 against Suriname, ranked 139 by FIFA. The Mario Alberto Kempes Stadium in Córdoba, the Madre de Ciudades in Santiago del Estero or a stadium in Buenos Aires are being considered for this match.

Argentina coach Lionel Scaloni has not given the team for these two matches yet. So there is curiosity about the future of Lionel Messi and Angel Di Maria. The World Cup winning coach, however, left the matter of playing in the national team to two experienced players. However, as long as they are fit, Scaloni has said that Messi and Di Maria will be called up to the national team.
