I'd love to go but I've just returned from a 23 day trip, so it would be difficult to take an additonal 1-2 days off. How about u Humbird? Do u plan to go?

Is anyone planning on going?

I have just heard that there is a chance that the match against Costa Rica may not take place after all. FA officials from Argentina and Costa Rica are working frantically on ensuring that the match goes ahead though there now appears to be some complications.

Let's hope they resolve any outstanding issues so that the match may proceed.

It's now official the match against Costa Rica has been canceled. Initial reports indicate that Bielsa is looking for tougher opponents and it seems that he doesn't believe that Costa Rica is a tough enough opponent.

At the moment the only scheduled match is against Germany in April. AFA are looking to schedule matches against some other Euro teams and either Cameroon or Senegal.

Further to the cancellation it appears that there were a couple of impediments on both sides. Firstly, Bielsa wanted the match played in Buenos Aires, while Grondona endorsed the idea of having the match played in Miami. Secondly, a number of Costa Rican players from the top league club in Costa Rica would have been unavailable due to club commitments. These particular players are important to Costa Rica and they apparently voiced their displeasure to the Costa Rican FA, which ultimately sided with the players.
