Scotland and Argentina agree November friendly

Scotland will play Argentina in a friendly at Hampden on November 19 after successfully reviving negotiations with the South Americans.

The Scottish Football Association pulled out of the proposed match in July when the costs involved appeared prohibitive.

The SFA were faced with a cost of around £1million to bring Argentina to Scotland, which would have meant ticket prices having to rise.

However the SFA have today confirmed the match will go ahead, and ticket prices will be kept at normal levels.

Scotland head coach George Burley said: "We cannot wait to test ourselves against one of the best teams in the world and look forward to our fans giving the Argentinians a great Scottish Hampden welcome when they come here in November.''

Scottish FA chief executive Gordon Smith said: "I am delighted that we have managed to strike a deal to bring Argentina to Scotland.

"When we were speaking to the representatives, it was clear that the Argentinians wanted to play us and were just as excited as we were about a match at Hampden. We are very pleased that we will be able to put on the game at a pricing structure that will appeal to fans.

"We want Scotland fans to see the players pit themselves against the best in the world and there are few teams better than Argentina. This is going to be a great match and a fantastic occasion and I know that George and the team will put on a show that will do the country proud.''
