Canada's under-20 men's soccer team will play Argentina in an exhibition match on May 11 in Toronto, the Canadian Soccer Association announced Thursday.
The game will take place at BMO Field, currently under construction and the future home of Major League Soccer expansion franchise Toronto FC.
Argentina will be a good test for Canada as it prepares for the 2007 FIFA Under-20 World Cup — the South American team is afive-time world youth champion.
Future exhibition games for Canada are slated for Ottawa, Edmonton and Sherbrooke, Que., the CSA said.
Canada plays Scotland from Burnaby, B.C., on Saturday in a game that will be streamed live on CBC.ca (1 p.m. PT, 4 p.m. ET).
Canada and Scotland meet again next Tuesday in Victoria.
Canada will host this summer's Under-20 World Cup from June 30 to July 22. Six cities across the country — Victoria and Burnaby, B.C.; Edmonton, Toronto, Ottawa and Montreal — will stage games, with the final slated for Toronto's BMO Field.
The Under-20 World Cup is the second-largest event staged by FIFA, soccer's world governing body, after the men's World Cup.
The tournament is the soccer equivalent of the world junior hockey championship and has launched the careers of some of the sport's biggest names, including Diego Maradona, Michael Owen, Luis Figo and Romario.
