Argentina and Portugal will meet in a friendly international at Arsenal's Emirates Stadium on 9 February.

The high-profile fixture is likely to feature some of football's biggest names, such as Argentina's Lionel Messi and Portugal's Cristiano Ronaldo.

It is set to be the first of two games in north London in quick succession for Messi, as Arsenal host Barcelona in the Champions League on 16 February.

Both national teams have played once before at the stadium.

Argentina lost 3-0 to Brazil in 2006, while Portugal beat Brazil 2-0 in February 2007.

As well as Messi and Ronaldo, stars such as Manchester City's Carlos Tevez and Javier Mascherano of Barcelona could feature for Argentina, while Jose Bosingwa, Nani, Ricardo Carvalho and Raul Meireles may turn out for Portugal.
