Football: Dybala, Mercado greet local fans ahead of friendly against Singapore

SINGAPORE - Argentina football stars Paulo Dybala and Gabriel Mercado have sent their greetings to Singapore fans ahead of next week's visit to face the Singapore national team.

Said Mercado: "We want all of you to join us for our match on Tuesday against the Singapore national team."

The Argentina national team arrive on Saturday (June 10) afternoon and they will be taking on the Singapore national team on Tuesday (June 13) at the National Stadium.
