Argentina will play Costa Rica rather than Nigeria in an exhibition on March 26 at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, the latest change for a match that has switched location and opponent.

OwoSports.com.ng sourced from Associated Press (AP) on Tuesday, that the World Cup champion originally was to face AFCON 2023 silver medalist -Super Eagles at Hangzhou and Ivory Coast at Beijing during a tour of China from March 18-26.

That tour was canceled after Lionel Messi didn’t play at Inter Miami’s preseason game in Hong Kong. Argentina last week announced matches against El Salvador on March 22 at Philadelphia’s Lincoln Field and Nigeria four days later in Los Angeles.

The Argentina Football Association said Tuesday the latest change was caused by administrative problems with visas.
