Argentina have finalised their plans for the build-up to the World Cup.
Marcelo Bielsa's squad will travel to Europe and train at Lazio's complex in Rome.

The Argentine Football Federation (AFA) are also hoping to schedule a final friendly in Japan days before the tournament starts on 31 May.

"Up to now, we have only confirmed we will be training in Europe from 6 May," AFA president Julio Grondona told a Buenos Aires radio station.

"I confirm now the players will start to train at Italian club Lazio and then fly to Japan from there."

Most of Bielsa's men play in Europe, including captain Diego Simeone, Hernan Crespo and Claudio Lopez who all ply their trade at Lazio.
Makes sense, given all the Argentine players who play for Roma and Lazio. :cool:
