First Week: Over

It was a mentally and physically demanding first week of Women's National Team training camp (well, four days), but the team will get Saturday off after a two-practice Friday that featured some intense 3 v. 3 and 1 v. 1 games as well as quite a bit of finishing. Today's trainings were played partly in rain, but that just made the slide tackles that much more fun. The entire U.S. team will attend the U.S. MNT match vs. Sweden tomorrow at The Home Depot Center and then hit the field again on Sunday for a pair of scrimmages. The competition for the 18 roster spots for the upcoming Algarve Cup is fierce as a number of younger players are battling for that plane ticket to Portugal. With 11 days of trainings still left to this camp, certainly the opportunities still abound.
