Morocco-Argentina: what FRMF will do in absence of Messi

The friendly match that will oppose, on March 26, the selection of Morocco to his Argentine counterpart will take place at the Tangier Grand Stade. The FRMF had demanded the participation of Lionel Messi from Argentina.

In case the Barça striker misses this duel, the Argentine federation will receive $ 500,000 less according to the contract signed with the FRMF.

The showdown is part of the Atlas Lions preparations for the upcoming African Cup of Nations (CAN-2019) scheduled for Egypt.

Remember that this is not the first time that Morocco faces Argentina. In 1994, a match was held on the sidelines of the Salta Cup (3-1 for Argentina). And in 2004, the two teams played in a friendly match in Casablanca which ended in the score of 1 to 0 in favor of the Argentinians.

Note that Morocco was initially facing the English selection, except that a disagreement around the date of the match has canceled this meeting.
