Iraq to play Argentina in friendly match tonight


The Argentina National Team will play a friendly match against Iraq tonight in Riyadh.

Argentina’s game against Iraq will take place in the Prince Faisal bin Fahd Stadium as part of a tournament also involving Saudi Arabia and Brazil.

Iraq, presently in 89th ranking, has been cleared by FIFA to play international matches in some parts of the country.

It has played only six games since February and lost only once, against Qatar, beating Saudi Arabia and Palestine and drawing with Syria and Kuwait.

The matches give Saudi Arabia and Iraq the chance to play strong opposition ahead of the 2019 Asian Cup.
