As all indoor matches it will take place at Earls Court venue.

Both teams played already two matches with Argentina defeating Australia and losing v Italy while Poland defeated Italy in its first match to be overcome by Bulgaria, the leader of Pool A and only undefeated team.

Just recently, at the Memorial Wagner competition organized by the Polish in Zielona Gora, the host team defeated Argentina 3-0.
