Italy, Argentina Will Play 'Dream' Soccer Match to Honor Pope

Italy and Argentina will meet in a friendly soccer match on August 14 in Rome’s Stadio Olimpico to honor Pope Francis, the Argentinian who is an avid soccer fan. The Pope will watch the match from the Vatican with representatives from both nations. 

In March, Pope Francis said “he would be ecstatic over a matchup of these two countries.”

Italy and Argentina are two of the most storied international soccer teams. Argentina features the game’s best player, Lionel Messi, who will try to navigate through Italy’s famous and always formidable defense.
