Argentina vs. Brazil in September to be cancelled


Argentina vs. Brazil in the World Cup qualifiers in September is set to be cancelled.

The postponed World Cup qualifying match between Argentina and Brazil which was set to take place in September will not be taking place. According to Pedro Ivo Almeida, Brazi national team coach Tite has asked CBF president Rodrigues to cancel the match.

Tite is worried about suspensions and with the match taking place in South America, he is worried about being able to find a second opponent which would be willing to travel to South America.

Lionel Scaloni and the AFA have been vocal about not wanting the match to be played. For Argentina, they are rumored to play Canada or the United States of America in September.

Initially, the match was going to be against Mexico but with both Argentina and Mexico being in the same group at the World Cup, that match will not be taking place. There is also the match against the United Arab Emirates in Abu Dhabi in November.


  1. Hellas Verona are looking at signing Matias Retegui, Tigre striker, who is the top scorer in the league, if Giovani Simeone moves to Napoli.
    Belgium club Genk have completed the signing of Matias Galarza from Argentinos. He will team up in midfield with fellow Argentine Nicolas Castro.

  2. Canada are ruled out, i hope for USA or only weak opponents remain again. Maybe rather go to Asia and play with Japan and South Korea as Brazil did.

  3. Exequiel Zeballos tibia was fractured yesterday after an idiot defender murdered him. Boca coaches and now this…i hope a fracture not that serious nowadays.

  4. It should have been a done deal a month or so after the Brazilians cowardly stopped the game after it had already started when they could have stopped it days before when FIFA and CONMEBOL both sanctioned the game and awarded ARG with the 3 points.
    Tite is scared shitless to get beat a few months before the WC, otherwise they would have openly welcomed the game. The Brazilians are dirty and playing them might risk the health of some players, especially Messi

    • As I understand 2 friendlies in September and 1 friendly on November 16th vs UAE.
      I’m reading November 13th is deadline day for WC squad announcement, meaning September friendlies are extra important to sort out remaining question marks
