The World Cup is now just a matter of days away and in the build-up to every major tournament, there are the international friendlies. Tuesday night sees Argentina face Haiti as they prepare for their exploits in Russia in a couple of week’s time.
The two nations have met twice on the international stage, once in a friendly and in Haiti’s only ever World Cup appearance. At the 1974 tournament in Germany, Argentina ran out 4-1 winners while in the friendly back in 2010, it finished 4-0 to the South Americans, who had fielded a very weakened side. A similar result this time around isn’t expected to be much different.
While Mauro Icardi is the big omission from the Argentina squad, Aguero is recovering from a knee injury so won’t feature against Haiti. A full-strength starting XI isn’t expected from Argentina. Latest matches: Argentina

This game is nothing more than a good experience for the Haiti players who will love to be playing against a squad that may feature a certain Lionel Messi.

There’s no doubt in anyone’s mind that Argentina will win this one, it’s just a matter of how many they will win by. It’s a training exercise more than anything else for the hosts ahead of what could be a huge tournament.
