Argentina Preview – Can Argentina assert their authority?

This upcoming fixture against Jamaica will be Argentina’s penultimate warm-up game prior to the World Cup finals which take place in November in Qatar, and although this match will be played on neutral ground in New Jersey, United States, Argentina nevertheless bring an impressive 34-match unbeaten run into this encounter.

Indeed, it’s now over three years since Argentina last tasted defeat which came in the form of the Copa America semi-final back in July 2019, but Argentina have since not only steadied the ship but have emerged as one of the serious contenders for possible World Cup glory in Qatar in what may well be Lionel Messi’s final World Cup.

Argentina had earlier finished runners-up behind their South American rivals, Brazil, in the South American section of the World Cup qualifiers, finishing six points behind the group winners but nevertheless, Argentina qualified with ease as there was a 15-point margin between themselves and 5th placed Peru who lost on penalties to Australia in the Inter-Continental play-off.

Both Brazil and Argentina safely navigated their way through qualification with both nations also being unbeaten throughout their respective qualifying campaigns with Argentina winning 11 and drawing 6 of their 17 group matches, while also keeping a total of 10 clean sheets in the process, which stands them in good stead not only for this fixture but also the World Cup.

Since qualifying, Argentina have also posted comprehensive wins against Italy 3-0 (in the CONMEBOLA/UEFA Finalissima), along with international friendly victories against Estonia 5-0 and a 3-0 win against Honduras, so confidence is expected to be sky-high for Argentina’s two remaining warm-up games.

Argentina have beaten Jamaica in each of the previous four occasions they’ve met, scoring a total of 14 goals and conceding just 1 in reply.

Jamaica Preview – Can Reggae Boyz contain their opponents?

Jamaica face a tough test in the shape of Argentina for this upcoming international friendly in New Jersey, but nevertheless, the Caribbean side will be relishing the opportunity to go toe-to-toe with the likes of Messi and Martinez as new national coach, Heimir Hallgrimsson, will be eager to get his new side off to a good start in his first game in charge of Jamaica.

Hallgrimsson gained success earlier in his managerial career when he guided Iceland to their first ever appearance in the European Championship finals, where they made it through to the quarter-finals stage before losing 5-2 to the World Cup winners in waiting, France, but Hallgrimsson faces another tough task of transforming Jamaica into potential World Cup material for the next tournament in 2026.

Having finished third from bottom in the recent CONCACAF World Cup qualifying section with just 11 points to their name, both Jamaica and Hallgrimsson face a huge task in guiding the nation to the next World Cup finals as Jamaica managed to win just two of their 14 matches played in the qualifying campaign.

The bigger picture shows that Jamaica have registered just three wins out of their previous 23 matches overall on the international stage while 59 places separate the Reggae Boyz from their 3rd placed opponents, Argentina, prior to this upcoming international friendly, whom they’ve struggled against in previous exchanges, losing each of the previous four meetings on the trot.

12 of Jamaica’s last 23 matches overall have seen the Caribbean outfit suffer defeats and another loss looks to be very much on the cards here against their more illustrious opponents, Argentina, on Tuesday night.

Hallgrimsson will be without the services of defender Gregory Leigh with an injury but otherwise has a fully fit squad from which to choose from.
