USA-Argentina set for a friendly on June 8, just one week before opening their World Cup qualifying campaign.

In the run up to the U.S. World Cup Qualifying, the United States will have played four top 25 teams in 2008. Let's recap shall we:

Sweden and Poland are tied at 24 in the FIFA world rankings.

England (on May 28) is ranked 11th.

Spain on June 4 is ranked 4th

Argentina on June 8 is ranked 1st.

If the U.S. (currently ranked 28th) is going to be ready for World Cup Qualifying, it is hard to imagine a better series of Tests for the Americans.

Oh, can I also point out that the U.S. has beaten both Sweden and Poland in Eurpoean soil.
