The AFA is working to find an alternative. As TN was able to find out, the idea is for them to be played in the United States. This would reduce travel, especially for Lionel Messi, and would function as a pilot test for the Copa América that will be played in the middle of the year.
The mother house of Argentine football had confirmed days ago that the match against the Nigerian team was going to take place at the Olympics Sports Center stadium in the city of Hangzhou. While the match against Ivory Coast was going to be played in Beijing.
