Germany will play Argentina in a friendly match in Duesseldorf on September 3 as a warm-up for Euro 2016 qualifiers, the German football federation announced Friday.
"During qualifications, the desire is to play big footballing nations. It's the wish of the coach and it's attractive for the fans," said federation secretary general Helmut Sandrock.
Germany have lost their last two friendlies against Argentina, going down 3-1 in August 2012 and 1-0 in March 2010, but posted an impressive 4-0 victory when it mattered most, in the 2010 World Cup quarter-finals.
