It was an exciting weekend for the United States Men’s National Team in their 1-1 draw with Argentina led by FIFPro World Player of the Year Leo Messi.
This past Saturday the United States Men took on Argentina as part of the international friendlies that have been going on for the past few days. Game was played at New Meadowlands Stadium in New Jersey to a crowd of 78,936.
The match was all offense for Argentina in the first half with Tim Howard being a wall in goal conceeding the only goal for Argentina in the 42nd minute to Cambiasso. Jozy Altidore did little up front to help any push the US made into the Argentine half.
Heading into the second half the US show more life especially with the substitutions of 18 year old Agudelo and 20 year old Chandler. Agudelo gave more support to Altidore up front and his efforts eventually paid off with the scoring of the only US goal on the night in the 59th minute.
The US men played well but it was Tim Howard that kept the score line low for the Argentines. Tonight the US men will match up against Paraguay in Nashville, Tennessee at LP Field. The only change to the roster is the departure of Edson Buddle who travels back to Germany to rejoin his club team FC Ingolstadt.
For those of you in the US the game will be broadcast on Fox Soccer Channel and Telefutura will broadcast the match live at 7 p.m. central time. Fans can also follow the game on the matchtracker or follow via Twitter @ussoccer
