The Argentine Polo Association has accepted an invitation from the New Zealand Polo Association for the National Team to face the team from New Zealand next Saturday, February 2, at the Kihikihi Polo Club in a high-goal six-chukker match. The club is located in the Waikato region, about 150 km (93 miles) from Auckland.
The AAP confirmed Diego "Topo" Braun as coach. His team won the FIP International Championship in Sydney, Australia, last October, and the International Polo Tournament in China in January 2017.
Braun selected the following members of Argentina's 25-goal team for the New Zealand event: Juan Martín Zubía (7 goals), Santiago Loza (6), Genaro Ringa (6) and Patrick O'Dwyer (6).
New Zealand is expected to announce its players next week.
