Pre-Game Prep

The U.S. team held a short training outside the Qinhuangdao Olympic Training Center Stadium this afternoon as the team makes final preparations to face Japan tomorrow at 5 p.m. local / 5 a.m. ET live on USA Network and the NBC Soccer Channel. The squad did an extended warm-up, some light finishing, a bit of tactical work, and then played the crossbar game. Besides Lori Chalupny, who will know tomorrow if she can play or not, the U.S. team is healthy and ready to go for this critical Group G match. Above Pia Sundhage speaks to the team before training and below the U.S. players back-peddle through poles during their warm-up.
