The Mexico National Team will play Argentina twice in their final two friendlies of 2018, the Mexican Federation announced on Wednesday.

The games will take place on November 17 and November 20 on Argentine soil, with the venues for each game to be determined.

Mexico was originally rumored to have friendlies planned in Europe, with Brazil this most likely rival. But now, it looks like it will be an Argentine double header.

Like Mexico, Argentina are currently under an interim manager in Lionel Sebastian Scaloni. La Albiceleste made the Quarterfinals of the 2018 World Cup before crashing out against eventual champions France.

Mexico and Argentina last faced each other in 2015, in a friendly that took place at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. El Tri took a 2-0 lead, but Sergio “Kun” Aguero and Lionel Messi scored in a span of four minutes late in the game to rescue a draw for the South Americans.
