Morocco last played against Argentina in April 2004.
Rabat – It is official: The national football teams of Morocco and Argentina will play a friendly game this spring.
Rabat’s Prince Moulay Abdellah Stadium will host the friendly match at 8 p.m.
Morocco and Argentina previously faced each other in a friendly game in April 2004. They also faced off in the 1994 World Cup, when Argentina won 3-1.
Last week, Argentinian news outlet Doble Amarilla speculated there would be a friendly game between the two countries. But the news outlet prematurely said that Casablanca’s Mohammed V Stadium would host the game.
FRMF posted the news on its Facebook page. The post generated multiple reactions. Commenters tagged their friends and relatives to express excitement for the game.
