" Mancini said the match between the two teams - who have won six World Cup titles between them - is one of the"classic games of world football". "It will be a great match and it is a great tribute to many players, like Giorgio (Chiellini), who will leave the national team, and Argentinian players soon to leave the national team," he said.
