USMNT announces March friendlies with Argentina, Paraguay

U.S. Soccer Federation

The United States men's national team is going to be taking on two of South America's top squads this spring.

The United States Soccer Federation officially confirmed the U.S. men's national team's March 26 friendly against Argentina in New Jersey, but it also announced a friendly with Paraguay three days later in Nashville, Tenn. The matches fall on FIFA international fixture dates.

The match against Argentina will be played at the New Meadowlands Stadium, the same site of the United States' friendly against Brazil over the summer. The last time the two countries met, Tim Howard starred at Giants Stadium in a 0-0 draw in 2008.

Paraguay defeated the United States in their last meeting at the 2007 Copa America. The World Cup quarterfinalists will meet Mexico in Oakland, Calif., three days prior to meeting the United States on March 29 at LP Field.

Excited about the friendlies? Think the games will be useful preparation ahead of the Gold Cup? Will you go to the matches?
