Argentina, led by Lionel Messi, are celebrating their World Cup title in the first half of 2023, but serious competition is coming.
Argentina celebrated its Albiceleste champions by hosting friendlies against Panama and Curacao.
Messi and Argentina will play friendlies until 2026 World Cup qualifying begins in the fall. Those should let fans see their World Cup heroes play before the 2026 World Cup.
Argentina had two friendlies in 2023 as of the March international break. The September start date for CONMEBOL World Cup qualifying is unknown.
Argentina's only matches this summer are March friendlies against Panama and Curacao. The Albiceleste will need friendlies to prepare for World Cup qualifying and the 2024 Copa America.
No fixtures have been confirmed for June 2023, but a tour of Asia has been rumored.
Argentina will play Ecuador, Bolivia, Paraguay, Peru, and Uruguay in World Cup qualifying in September 2023 before facing Brazil on the road to end the year.
