THE MEN NATIONAL TEAM READY FOR THEIR DEBUT AT THE WORLD CUP

GALLERY

The time has come for the debut of the Argentine Men's National Team at the 2019 World Cup, the last tournament on the international calendar for Marcelo Méndez's team. The first game will be against the United States.

The group, which worked last week in Kagoshima, traveled on Sunday to Fukuoka, venue of the first five games of the event. The city's Marin Messe will be the stadium where Argentina faces with the Americans, Tunisia, Italy, Poland and Japan from October. 1 to 6th.

In their first game the National Team will face the United States, the reigning champion, who will go with its first team to defend the 2015 title. While the World Cup no longer works as an Olympic qualifier, it is a good test for Tokyo 2020 and several teams will take the opportunity to evaluate players. The game of Argentina will be the one that inaugurates the action in Fukuoka.

After the first five meetings, those led by Mendez will move to Hiroshima to complete the remaining six. The World Cup, which is played every four years, gathers 12 team in a single round robin format that determines the champion following the winning games criteria.
