Australia vs Argentina head to head record
This matchup will be just the ninth time that Argentina have faced Australia in their footballing history, and the fourth friendly fixture between the two sides.
La Albiceleste have won the last five meetings since a 1993 World Cup playoff, and that includes the game in Qatar in December 2022. Juan Riquelme scored in a 4-2 win over the Socceroos in the 2005 Confederations Cup.
The only time Australia avoided defeat in a competitive match was the first leg of an intercontinental playoff for the 1994 FIFA World Cup. That first leg ended 1-1, but the reverse leg saw Argentina advance with a 1-0 victory on home soil.
