Indonesia vs Argentina: Where to watch the match online, live stream, TV channels, and kick-off time
How to watch the friendly match between Indonesia and Argentina, as well as kick-off time and team news.
When Argentina play Indonesia in Jakarta on Monday, the defending world champions will want to make it 10 games in a row without a loss.
Meanwhile, the hosts enter the friendly match in strong form after losing only one of their previous 12 games in the international arena.
Indonesia have played three straight friendlies since losing to Vietnam 2-0 on aggregate in the AFF Championship semi-finals.
In the March international window, two of the friendlies were played against Burundi, with the results being a 3-1 win and a 2-2 draw.
Indonesia scored five goals in two games in March, but they were unable to continue that pace against Palestine on Wednesday.
Argentina stepped onto the pitch for the third time since winning the World Cup in Qatar when they met Australia in China, easily defeating Curacao and Panama in March.
When Argentina defeated Australia 2-1 in the 2022 World Cup’s Round of 16, Lionel Messi scored the first goal. On Thursday, the 35-year-old accomplished the same feat, but much more quickly.
Messi scored the quickest goal of his career while playing for the first time since confirming his transfer to Inter Miami. He scored a beautiful goal from outside the box in under 80 seconds.
La Albiceleste have won seven straight friendlies without conceding since they drew 2-2 with Uruguay in November 2019, and they will be optimistic about continuing that outstanding run on Monday.
