Argentina vs. Israel, South Korea close to happening in June friendly matches


Argentina could have two new opponents in June.

While the Finalissima match against Italy on June 1 at Wembley and the match against Brazil in Australia on June 11 are both confirmed, Lionel Scaloni’s team could have two more matches to play that month.

As we reported a few weeks ago, Argentina against Israel on June 6 is a real possibility. And it is likely to happen. According to DobleAmarilla, everything appears set for the match to be played at the Sammy Ofer Haifa stadium.

The other match is could be on June 15 against South Korea. If this match were to happen, it would likely be the last game for Argentina prior to September.

In September, Argentina were set to play Mexico but since both teams are in the same group at the 2022 Qatar World Cup, the friendly game in the United States will not be happening. Instead, per the same report, Argentina could play El Salvador and either Canada or the United States. Here are Argentina’s match prior to the 2022 Qatar World Cup:

Argentina vs. Italy – June 1: Wembley stadium, London, England.

Argentina vs. Israel – June 6: Sammy Ofer Haifa stadium, Haifa, Israel. Unconfirmed.

Argentina vs. Brazil – June 11: Melbourne Cricket Ground, Melbourne, Australia.

Argentina vs. South Korea – June 15: Unconfirmed.

Argentina vs. El Salvador – September, in the United States. Unconfirmed.

Argentina vs. Canada or United States – September, in the United States. Unconfirmed.


  1. It’s been 17 years since the classic of Argentina vs England last happened. Why isn’t anyone talking about this. We need to see Messi play against England before he retires. I’m going to start a petition for both FA’s to make it happen. Please follow me on Twitter @ualbert or join me in making your own petition so we can make this game happen.

      • Its not fixed. Either el Salvador or canada or usa. Actually we should play 1-2 easy friendlies also. We can’t play all tough friendlies. We r already playing italy, Brazil (2 times) and south Korea. Thats 4 challenging friendlies. If we play usa or Canada that will be also not very easy. I think our friendly lineup is quite decent. We are playing a top European side italy a wc favorite side Brazil a top Asian side south Korea we just missing a top African side like senegal or Egypt. If we can organize an African side like Egypt or Senegal that will be great
