Small Sided Training

Just six players trained on the field today, four field players and two goalkeepers, but it surely was intense and hard working. And hot. The heat has not let up in Qinhuangdao, but as you may have heard somewhere before, it's not so much the heat as the humidity. With just four players and 30 soccer balls, you can imagine that they got a lot of touches, doing some passing patterns and then finishing with some fitness/shooting/finishing. But when you watch a loss on the bench as those players did last night (except for Tobin Heath who played 12 minutes) it gives you some energy to go out and have a good training no matter how many players are on the field. The six will get their teammates back tomorrow, but they won't have five soccer balls each to play with.
