Argentina will play two friendlies with UEFA nations next year.
Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi last played against each other early this year when PSG faced Al-Nasst in a friendly match. It came after 2 long years and fans were ecstatic about it. With Messi moving to the United States while Ronaldo stayed in Saudi Arabia, the chances lessened. However, reportedly, the Argentina team will play a few European teams next year in friendlies. No solid decision has been made by the AFA, but they could play against Portugal, England, Germany, or more nations.
It hasn’t been long since Cristiano Ronaldo admitted that their coveted rivalry is gone. After being at the top of the game consistently for so many years, both players have moved away from Europe. Both players’ fans truly enjoyed the rivalry. Hence, they would love nothing more to see the two icons of this generation play against each other for one last time. It seems that wish could just come true with Lionel Messi and Co. at Argentina are set to play a few friendly matches against some European nations next year.
The Argentina Football Association have not made a solid decision yet. However, Portugal is one of the top teams on the list to become their opponents in the matches. They could also play against the Netherlands, Germany, England, France, or others. As per reports, CONMEBOL could also be announcing an inter-federation friendly cup competition with UEFA teams called the “Copa Interfederacions’. Final decisions on the cup are yet to be taken, but the short friendly cup tournament could happen that will give fans a regular way to watch Messi playing against Ronaldo.
On the other hand, Argentina could also face England. The match could be played at the iconic Wembley Stadium where Argentina recently won the Finalissima against Italy. However, fans will want to see the last chance of playing against each other. With both players’ age pushing, this could just be their last chance at playing against each other. Reportedly, these next fixtures could be announced on 9th November. Hence, fans will get to know the opponents for those two friendly games at that time.
