“Argentina is passionate about its soccer and has produced some of the best players in the world,” said head coach Chris Shaw. “To host their full women’s national team is an unbelievable occasion as they make their final preparations for the upcoming women’s World Cup in France. It is a once in a lifetime opportunity for many of our players to complete against a national team. We are excited about the game and look forward to playing against a team that will be competing on the world stage in a few months.”
