Breakfast, Rain and Sun

The morning started out with a U.S. Women’s National Team first. Sure the team has gone out to many, many dinners together, and a few lunches too, but this morning marked the first-ever “breakfast out” for the WNT. The whole team drove to a well-known local eatery and munched down on some fantastic breakfast fare before 12 players headed straight to training and the rest headed for a day off. When the dozen players started warming up, it was raining and windy. When they ended, there was bright sunshine and light breezes, making for some pretty prefect soccer weather. For the two dozen players that got the day off, several of whom are nursing sore hamstrings and other body parts, it was a nice respite from an intense week and a half of training. The U.S. team hits the field again tomorrow for two trainings and the morning practice will include some weight-lifting. There will be scrimmage on Saturday then a morning training on Sunday will conclude the camp. U.S. head coach Pia Sundhage should announce the Algarve Cup roster early next week.
