Kazakhstan’s National Football team might play a friendly match with Argentina in Astana. One of the best football players in the world - the captain of Argentina’s national team Lionel Messi is likely to arrive in Kazakhstan.

Press secretary of the Kazakh Football Federation Erbol Kairov announced that Argentina does not mind to hold a friendly match in Kazakhstan. Messi and the team are ready to fly to Astana immediately after the game with the Russian team.

"Argentina is not against the match, because, they plan to hold two games at once - on 11 and 14 November. Everything depends on finances. This is an expensive pleasure to bring them to Kazakhstan. In any case, after the end of the national championship, there will be a collection and national team will play on November 14. In the next 10 days we must agree with Argentina team until they flew to Moscow," said the Press Secretary.

According to him, the Kazakh Football Federation is negotiating with both sponsors and with the national team of Argentina.

"Argentina's national team announced its squad for the match with Russia on November 11. That is the lineup with Lionel Messi, Aguero, Di Maria, Mascherano and other stars. In case if we find the budget, this match will be held 100 percent," summed up Kairov.

As Press secretary said, 40 % of the total amount will pay the KFF, for another 60% they are negotiating with sponsors.

To recall, on November 11, Argentina’s national team will play a friendly match in Moscow with the hosts of the 2018 World Cup. The tournament will be held in Russia from June 14 to July 15, 2018.
