The United States Men's National team played Argentina to a thrilling 1-1 draw this past Saturday at the New Meadowlands Stadium. Both sides fielded some of their strongest players, and despite the fact that it was a friendly, both teams went all out looking to grab the win.
Both managers seemed to treat the match as if it were more than a friendly, combining to make just three substitutions, a rarity in an international friendly match. With the Yanks preparing for this summer's Gold Cup campaign, USMNT manager Bob Bradley is starting to try to gel his side together.
The U.S. looked pretty lethargic in the first half against Argentina but came out much differently in the second half. The U.S. scored an equalizer early in the second half and were able to hold on for the draw.
Even though the U.S. has played terrific matches against quality opponents in the last few years, and despite a draw against Argentina looking great on paper, there are still major concerns and problems for the U.S. Men's National team going forward.
Here are a few quick thoughts following the U.S.-Argentina match.
