Cristiano Ronaldo returning to Old Trafford for November friendly against Argentina

by Sam Peoples

UEFA have confirmed Portugal will play Argentina in an international friendly at Old Trafford on 18 November.

There were rumours a few weeks ago that were unconfirmed but UEFA have now put an official date on the fixture.

The glamorous tie will see Cristiano Ronaldo line-up against Angel di Maria for the first time since the Argentinian moved to Manchester United in the summer and, of course, against Lionel Messi.

Marcos Rojo and Nani are also likely to feature in the star studded game which should be a fantastic occasion even if it is only a friendly.

Ronaldo has only been back at Old Trafford once for the Champions League game we shall not speak of so it will be good to see him back again.

It’s probably the closest Ronaldo will get to a United return and there’ll be plenty of fans who will go along for what should, in theory, be a great game of football.

Di Maria has started to fill the space left behind by Ronaldo in 2009 so it will be interesting to see how they fare against each other.
