The Argentina vs. Brazil friendly match in Australia hsa been cancelled as an announcement has been made.

While the Brazilian FA had previously confirmed the match, the Argentina FA had not yet confirmed it. On Wednesday, it was Juninho Paulista, the sports coordinator of the Brazil national team which announced that the match on June 11 in Australia at the MCG has been cancelled.

It was also announced earlier this week by FIFA that both teams would have to replay their World Cup qualifying match in September. As we reported, the AFA will appeal to the court of arbitration for sports as they do not want to play the match.

    In this way boca and river always try to pressure on nation team coach.. overrated player.. Seems Portugal Club his destination.
    Facundo farias(19) is better than him

    • What a bad take. You can tell someone has no idea what they’re talking about when they make a big claim like a player “is overrated” and give no explanation for why they came to that conclusion. By what metric or reasoning is he overrated? By “Portugal Club” I assume you mean Benfica which as of today he is linked to. Don’t see how that would be bad since it is a big club and a great stepping stone between South America and Europe as proven by Di Maria. The comparison to Farias is also ridiculous, not only is Farias a forward but he is mostly just a dribbler who needs to add more to his game in order to have a shot at contributing meaningfully to a national team or decent European club. Enzo is much more complete and developed than Farias.
