All Good in Alvor

We'll say this for the USA's match venue today in isn't much of a stadium and the pitch is bumpy, but man, what a view. The field is about 300 yards from the ocean and is almost right up against a marina. The sun was out, the ocean breezes were blowing and you couldn't ask for a nicer afternoon in the Algarve. As the team walked to the bus after a wonderful meal at a local restaurant, the sunset was also stunning. All that combined with a solid 2-0 win over Italy and you've got to say it was a pretty good day. (Note: The dirt field in the above pic is not the game field. It's not that bad. That field is outside the stadium)
