ESPN - Wednesday 19th April, 2017
Barcelona forward Lionel Messi and Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero are two of the global superstars who are expected to showcase their skills at the National Stadium on June 13 after Singapore's glamour friendly against Argentina was confirmed.
The match, which had been first mooted in January, was announced on Wednesday afternoon as part of a four-nation tour that will kick off four days earlier, with the Argentineans playing Brazil in Melbourne.
The likes of Messi and Aguero are no strangers to Brazilian rivals like Neymar and Thiago Silva from matches in South America.

The match will come three days after the Lions play an important 2019 AFC Asian Cup third round qualifier against Chinese Taipei at the same venue.
