The U.S. team trained today at Dick's Sporting Goods Park, and as it's the first visit for the WNT to the venue, we must say we came away extremely impressed. Kudos to the architects, designers, workers and anyone else that was involved in building this building as it's surely one of the best soccer venues in the country. The 18,000-seat stadium, which opened in April of 2007, is surrounded by a 24 fields, and the stadium pitch is about as good as it gets. It's also wide. Very wide. We're told that the stadium features the largest video scoreboard for a stadium its size in the world, and that's pretty cool. The U.S. team had a 70-minute training in perfect weather and the atmosphere tomorrow for the game should be rockin', as it will be the fourth largest crowd to see the U.S. team play this year and largest inside the USA.
