Argentina vs Panama: Where to watch the match online, live stream, TV channels & kick-off time

Messi World Cup ArgentinaGetty

World champions Argentina are set to welcome Panama at El Monumental in Buenos Aires on Thursday in a friendly.

The Albiceleste return to action for the first time since Lionel Messi lifted the World Cup in Qatar back in December 2022. Lionel Scaloni continues to remain at the helm after guiding Argentina to their third global crown. He has been awarded a new contract until 2026 for his heroics in the international tournament.

They have met Panama twice previously, a 3-1 friendly win back in 2009 before trouncing them 5-0 in the Copa America group stage in June 2016, courtesy of a Messi hat-trick in the second half. If they can play to their potential, then this should be a walk in the proverbial park for Scaloni's troops.
