Canada-Argentina confirmed for May 24th

The long rumoured friendly between Canada and Argentina, which has been more or less a sure thing for some time now, has now been confirmed. The match will take place at Estadio Monumental in Buenos Aires, home to River Plate.

An important change is that the match is scheduled for Monday, May 24th, not the 25th as initially rumoured.

While Toronto FC aren't playing in midweek, they do have a weekend match on the schedule. It will be very interesting to see whether Julian de Guzman is allowed to join Canada for this match.

UPDATE: De Rosario comments on the friendly announcement, and hints that he'd like to be there for the match, which is a bit surprising as he bailed on the more important Gold Cup tournament. This will be a very interesting club vs country storyline as it develops.
