The United States just finished off their second of two friendlies for the March international break. They tied Argentina 1-1 with a very solid result, although not necessarily an excellent performance. But then they lost to Paraguay in an unfortunate result but a decent enough performance.

These friendlies served two main purposes. First, to allow Bob Bradley to get a general idea of the players he will be selecting for this summer's CONCACAF Gold Cup. Second, to provide the United States "A" team with some challenging competition.

The US continued their tradition of playing tough teams in friendlies, with Argentina being one of the top teams in the world right now, and Paraguay being roughly equal in standing and ability with the US team.

Over these two games, certain staples of the American national team faltered, and some young players cemented their spots as Team USA members.

Here are five things that we can learn from the USA's performance on Saturday and Tuesday nights.
