Angel di Maria set for showdown against Cristiano Ronaldo at Old Trafford

by Sam Peoples

Angel di Maria and Marcos Rojo have been named in Argentina’s squad to face Croatia and Portugal in two international this November.

Argentina face off against Portugal on 18 November at Old Trafford and it will be an opportunity for fans to see Cristiano Ronaldo back in action at United’s ground.

Usually, international breaks are mundane affairs but this tie should be really interesting to watch as it will be the first time Di Maria and Ronaldo line up against each other since Di Maria’s exit from Real Madrid in the summer.

For Rojo, it will be a big test as well. His usual position with Argentina is at left-back which means he could be handed the almost impossible task of stopping Ronaldo.

The bonus for Di Maria and Rojo is that they won’t have to travel long distances as both games are in England, something that should help make sure the return to United without injury.
