Mellow Monday

Now this was what you call a day off. No training, no meetings, no mandatory meals, no nuthin’ except a bit of R&R for the players. Most spent at least a part of the day with friends and family, and a few players, their families, and most of the staff went out to a nice dinner at an upscale western eatery in an upscale area of Shanghai. The burgers and steaks were certainly tasty. The team returns to training tomorrow morning and then will board a bus in the afternoon for the two-hour drive to Hangzhou to make final preparations for the semifinal match against Brazil on Thursday, Sept. 27.

You all deserve at least one day off. lol. Especially the back four. You all worked so very hard and had a brilliant game. And Lopez has stitches to show for it. I would like to hear what Coach Hall has to say about the 3 shutouts you have had this tournament. Well done defense.
