ST. LOUIS (KSDK) - Busch Stadium will once again play host to international soccer stars as the Argentine National Soccer Team will face the Bosnia-Herzegovina team this November.
The Argentineans, led by four-time "world's best player" Lionel Messi (Barcelona), qualified for the 2014 FIFA World Cup. Messi won FIFA World Player of the Year in 2009, and then the Ballon d'Or award in 2010, 2011 and 2012 after the honors were merged.
The Bosnian team's appearance in this game is contingent on them qualifying for the World Cup. At present, Bosnia-Herzegovina leads its qualifying group on a tiebreaker but still has matches against Lichtenstein (October 11) and Lithuania (October 15) to close out the final round of qualifying. The country is looking to qualify for its first World Cup.
Bosnia won Group G and qualified for its first World Cup Tuesday.
The match is slated for November 18 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets for the contest went on sale October 10 at 10 a.m. at Cardinals.com/soccer, the Busch Stadium box office and 314-345-9000. A special pre-sale will began October 8 for Cardinals season ticket holders and club VIPs.
This will be the second soccer match at Busch Stadium. Manchester City played and defeated Chelsea 4-3 on May 23 in front of 48,263 fans.
In August, approximately 54,000 people watched Spanish league giants Real Madrid defeat Italian squad Inter Milan 3-0.
