Diego Maradona has announced he will make his debut as head coach of Argentina in the friendly against Scotland at Hampden Park next month.
And Maradona will fly to England this weekend to meet Manchester United striker Carlos Tevez and Liverpool midfielder Javier Mascherano.
The Argentina legend has not yet been confirmed as his country's new manager, as the Argentinian FA board must ratify his appointment at a meeting next Tuesday.
However that is considered a simple formality, and the 48-year-old expects to be in charge of the national team for the November 19 clash with George Burley's Scots.
Maradona has revealed, though, that star forward Lionel Messi will not make the trip to Glasgow for the match.
Argentina have an arrangement with Messi's club, Barcelona, which means the 21-year-old does not play in every friendly.
