This Tuesday, the Argentina receives Curaçao in a friendly match at the Unico Madre de Ciudades Stadium, in Santiago del Estero. The duel is scheduled for 20:30 (Brasília time).
Argentina continues to celebrate the world title won in December at the World Cup in Qatar. On Thursday, Scaloni’s team received Panama at the Monumental de Núñez and won the game 2-0. However, the night was marked by tributes to the players of the three-time champion team before and after the match. In addition, Messi scored a free kick and reached the mark of 800 goals in his career and 99 for the Argentina national team.
For the new friendly, Lionel Scaloni should rotate the squad a little more and give game time to all selected players. Only four or five starters from the Panama game are expected to start the match.
On the other hand, Curaçao is experiencing an unstable campaign in the CONCACAF League of Nations. The team is the third and last placed in group C of League A of the competition, which has Honduras and Canada, with three points conquered. On Saturday, in their last match, the Caribbean team lost to the Canadian squad by 2-0.
Coach Remko Bicentini must repeat the base lineup that started the game against Canada.
