The venues for the France 2023 World Cup have already been defined and the most exciting stage begins in the quarter-finals, the first goal for the Los Pumas team, who will debut in the competition, on September 9 against England, in Marseille, by Group D.
The The first two quarter-final matches will be played on Saturday October 14 in Marseille and Saint-Denis. In the first venue the first of Group C (possibly Australia or Wales), against the second of Group D (The Pumas, England or Japan are the ones with the most chances). Meanwhile, the Stade de France will host the first of group B (will it be the defending champion South Africa?) Against the second of group A (France or New Zealand).
On Sunday the first of Group D (the area of Los Pumas) will play in Marseille against the second of Group C, where Australia and Wales add more chances to occupy that place. On the same day at the Stade de France, the first from Group A will go against the second from Group B.
In the event that Los Pumas advance to the semifinal, they could play on Friday 20 or Saturday 21 October against France or the All Blacks, if the forecasts meet logic. Both will be played at the Stade de France, as well as third place and the final. A stadium that the Argentine national team remembers fondly after its debut match and third place in the 2007 World Cup.
