Lionel Messi And Cristiano Ronaldo To Face Off In February As Argentina Take On Portugal

Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo will get another chance to prove who is the best player in the world, as the Barcelona and Real Madrid superstars line up against each other for the first time wearing their international jerseys.

The Argentine FA announced on their website that the Albiceleste and Portugal would play a friendly on February 9, 2011, in London's Emirates Stadium. The game will be the first encounter between the two countries since 1972, when Portugal defeated Argentina 3-1 in Brazil.

The story is too old to be commented.

yes it will be a close match but Argentina might just take it 2-1 to the South Americans

I dunno. Based on how the two teams have been playing since appointing new managers, I'd go for either a 2-2 draw or a 2-1 win for Portugal. Remember how lethal Portugal were against Spain on the counter in their recent friendly? I'm not too sure about Argentina's defense yet.
