US-Argentina Game Set

According to media down in Argentina, the US National team will face the Argentina National team in a friendly this summer on June 8th in Giants Stadium.

From the Argentina FA’s website:

The Argentine national team will take a mini-tour through North America in June. Alfio Basile’s squad will face Mexico in San Diego on the 4th of that month and will play four days later against the United States in New York. In both cases, neither the time nor the stadium has been set.

Not real surprising news to most who knew the two sides would probably meet this summer as it was widely rumored all winter long.

I really love the fact that the USSF is willing to go out and play some top 10 teams this year before World Cup qualifing starts up. I only hope that continues going into 2010 before the World Cup in South Africa. I think the stronger the friendlies the better prepared the National side will be for both qualifiers and the actual World Cup.

Argentina will also face Mexico in San Diego on June 4th.

More news coming today, just got off to a slow start this morning that’s all!
