US Soccer Finalizes March Dates with Argentina and Paraguay
Then two and a half weeks later on February 9, the US will take on 10th ranked Egypt in Cairo. In what should be a reunification of all the US big guns, the US will renew acquaintances with the northern African country that the US beat 3-0 in the 2009 Confederations Cup to advance to the semi-finals.
For the two March international dates, the US has scheduled 5th ranked Argentina, who will bring their full side and talents to the New Meadowlands Stadium in New Jersey on March 26. Timmy "Stonewall" Howard shut down Argentina's attack and the US held on to a famous 0-0 draw in the Jersey rain in 2008. Three days later, the US travels south to Nashville, TN for a date with 24th ranked Paraguay. Ninety Plus will be in attendance for that one.
Rumors continue to circulate about a late May or early June re-match with the top ranked team from Spain.
Well done to US Soccer.
