The World Cup champions are eager to go back to playing to show their brand-new jersey with three stars in it, but there won’t be any title to win this year. Check out the schedule for Lionel Messi, Argentina’s national soccer team in 2023 while they still celebrate what happened in Qatar.
Argentina have been the main focus of the sport ever since their title. The World Cup they won in Qatar sparked celebrations everywhere with a lot of admiration towards Lionel Messi. Find out the complete 2023 national football team schedule.
The weight was heavily on Argentina’s players in November/December 2022 in Qatar. Waiting 36 years for a team with such quality rosters at every World Cup was too much, but thankfully it’s behind them now for how they played.
The thrilling final against France at the Lusail Stadium will be a replay for the ages in Argentina, although it is a thrill to watch the team compete again after their historic success. It’s time to continue celebrating with the fans at home with games instead of just victory parades with millions of people cheering.
The 2023 schedule of Argentina national soccer team
In the last couple of years there were plenty of opportunities for the team to lift a trophy. The long-awaited image of Messi winning with Argentina finally arrived in the 2021 Copa America. That was followed by the Finalissima vs Italy at Wembley in 2022. It was then repeated at the World Cup later in the year.
The schedule this time doesn’t present any crown at stake for them. Argentina will have friendly games to begin their year. These matchups will serve as the chance for the players to celebrate in front of the fans against rivals of inferior level.
Then it will be the start of the qualifiers for the 2026 World Cup. The tournament to be played in the United States, Mexico, and Canada will have 48 teams instead of 32. So the path should be even easier than it used to be for the South American countries.
