Angola bring forward friendly against Argentina

LUANDA, April 5 (Reuters) - Angola have brought forward their World Cup friendly against Argentina in Naples by one day to avoid a clash with Italy's match against Switzerland, the Angolan Football Federation said on Wednesday.

Angola and Argentina, both preparing for the World Cup finals in Germany, will now meet in Naples on May 30.

Italy play Switzerland in Geneva the following day.

The match against Argentina is one of three that the Angolans have finalised in an updated programme of preparation. They have dropped plans for a game in mid-May against a Catalan select side in Barcelona and will now play Turkey instead of Saudi Arabia in Germany on June 2.

Angola's friendly against the U.S. in Norderstedt, near Hamburg, on June 5 remains unchanged but officials said it would be played behind closed doors.

Angola's campaign at the World Cup finals begins on June 11 against Portugal in Cologne. Iran and Mexico are also in their opening round group.
