BUENOS AIRES — Two-time world champions Argentina will meet South American rivals Brazil and Uruguay in international friendlies next month, the Argentine Football Association (AFA) said on Monday.
Earlier this month, Argentina drew 2-2 with Germany in Dortmund before beating Ecuador 6-1 in Alicante, Spain
The Albiceleste will face Brazil in Saudi Arabia on November 15 and Uruguay in Israel four days later, the AFA said on its official Twitter account.
Argentina head coach Lionel Scaloni will be free to recall captain Lionel Messi, who served a three-month ban after accusing the South American Football Confederation (CONMEBOL) of corruption during this year's Copa America in Brazil.
The friendlies will be Scaloni's last chance to test his squad in match conditions before the South American zone qualifiers for the 2022 World Cup, which begin in March.
Earlier this month, Argentina drew 2-2 with Germany in Dortmund before beating Ecuador 6-1 in Alicante, Spain.
