Ready in China

The USA’s advance team of U.S. Soccer Event Coordinator Amy Hopfinger, athletic trainer Gigi Garcia and asst. equipment manager Hector Tovar Jr. are set and ready for the team’s arrival in Shanghai. Hopfinger is putting the final touches on the USA’s accommodations and today she purchased one of those cool video game systems for the players’ lounge that the kids love. (Did we mention Abby Wambach is practically unbeatable at FIFA ’07?). Prediction: The WNT blog will get some good stuff from the player lounge over the next few weeks.
