Opening Day

The 2008 CONCACAF Women's Olympic Qualifying Tournament opens today, but the USA, of course, does not play until Friday. Today Mexico will face Jamaica and Canada takes on Trinidad & Tobago. The U.S. will take in part of the JAM-MEX game, getting a preview of their two Group A opponents. The USA held a split training this morning with the forwards and a few midfielders training from 10:30-11:30 while the defenders and a few more midfielders trained from 11:30-12:30. The goalkeepers had to do both trainings after which they both looked like Pig Pen from the Charlie Brown cartoons after diving around in the dirt for a few hours. Both groups stopped at Starbucks on the way back from training and the iced coffee drinks surely hit the spot. The USA is scheduled to train for an hour in the stadium at some point tomorrow before opening the competition on Friday night at 7:30 p.m. PT. Fans can follow the match as it happens on's MatchTracker.
