Hangin' at Anyang

The U.S. team trained for the first few days in South Korea on a field that was a bit hard and bumpy, but today traveled 30 minutes to Anyang Sports Complex which features the kind of plush, green, flat field that just makes you want to play some soccer. Every bounce is true, every roll is smooth and the goal areas are (gasp) 100% grass. No dirt inside the six at Anyang. The temperatures were a bit cooler with a great cool breeze, and the team had an excellent training that featured speed, strength and agility exercises at the beginning and some 9 v. 9 play to finish. The team will train at Anyang for the next two days before opening the Peace Queen Cup against Australia on Sunday, June 15, at the Suwon Sports Complex.

Sounds like a great complex-what I wouldn't give to have grass in my entire six...
Good luck, stay healthy and train hard!
