Great Trip, Great Games, Great Cities

Any way you slice it, two wins in Scandinavia, the first ever wins in Norway and Sweden in fact, are excellent results. Throw-in two shutouts and the team is rounding its way into peak form for the Olympics. Of course, two games against Brazil still remain, but those should be excellent preparation for the Olympics as well. The U.S. team headed straight to the Skelleftea airport after the match (small, small airport, but luckily big runways) and caught a small charter to Stockholm where they will spend the night before boarding a flight to New York in the early A.M. From there, it's domestic flights home for a few days of R&R before regrouping in Denver for the first match against Brazil on July 13. Looking back, it was a wonderful trip to Scandinavia in every rway. There is not more beautiful countyside in the world and the U.S. team was treated exceptionally well in both Norway and Sweden. So thanks to our Nordic hosts and hopefully the WNT will be back here soon. For now, Tak.

Congrats to the WNT for the two wins! And great job, WNT Bloggers! I loved the blog once again!

I do have a quick question, if you get a chance. I am attending the game in Denver on the 13th. I would love to catch a pratice if possible. Is there anyway to find out when the team will be practicing in Denver?

Hi,

One quick question- will Tobin Heath be wearing #13 at the Olympics? I really want to get a jersey, but I don't want to order it with the wrong number. Thanks! Go USA!!
