The final pre-Algarve Cup training is in the books and the U.S. players are just relaxing this afternoon in preparation for the China match tomorrow. A few players did go pottery shopping, but otherwise, it's just relaxing and focusing for the rest of the day, plus the usual pre-game meeting tonight. The USA has opened the Algarve Cup against China the last two years, and won both matches. As we know, every game is critical in group play as only the group winner makes the championship game. Therefore, points and goals are at a premium and tomorrow the Americans will be looking for three of the former and more than a few of the latter.
