The AFA want to organise matches in 2023 to celebrate the Argentina national team winning the World Cup.

It’s been 36 years since Argentina last won the World Cup and now that the trophy is in Argentina and the celebrations have slowly started to die down, the AFA are looking to have a few friendly matches to continue the celebrations. AFA president Claudio Tapia spoke at a press conference about their plans for the matches. Here is what he had to say:

“Now we will try to look at the calendar for next year and we want these guys to get the recognition that they deserve. And best that it is played in Argentina. We will see when FIFA will confirm their fixture lists but we want to play in our country before playing away.”

FIFA have yet to confirm matches for next year, specifically when the World Cup qualifiers will begin. If they will start in March, June or possibly even in September.
