European Championship qualifying wil be the focus of plenty of attention today, but the Argentina-Spain friendly just might be the most intriguing match of the day.

Argentina will be led by new manager Sergio Batista, who has taken over for Diego Maradona on an interim basis. Batista isn't a coaching novice, having guided Argentina to the gold medal at the 2008 Olympics. Batista shared some interesting insights with in the lead-up to today's big friendly.

While seeing Lionel Messi do battle with Barcelona teamamtes Xavi, Iniesta and Carles Puyol (among others) will be at the top of many people's day-time viewing lists, Euro qualifiers should provide more intensity as some countries look to overcome bad starts. France and Portugal will be looking to recover from disappointing qualifying starts, while England and Germany look to build on their opening victories.
