The international break returns to the fold with another set of matches this week as Australia lock horns with Lionel Scaloni’s impressive Argentina side in an intriguing clash at the Workers’ Stadium in Beijing on Thursday.
Argentina are in the midst of a purple patch at the moment and pulled off a historic World Cup triumph last year. The Albiceleste eased past Curacao by a 7-0 margin in their previous game and will be confident ahead of this fixture.
Australia also punched above their weight in the World Cup and have grown in stature as a footballing nation over the past decade. The Socceroos slumped to a 2-1 defeat at the hands of Ecuador in March this year and will need to work hard to bounce back this week.
Their last duel took place on December 3, 2022, when the game ended in a 2-1 win for the La Albiceleste at the 2022 World Cup. It promises to be an even more exciting clash as they clash for the first time since then, this time in an exhibition match.
