For 15 days, the players have trained...and Pia has watched
(well, and coached, but watched made for a more dramatic cut line).
With just one and a half days and three trainings left in this 17-day "pre-season" camp, the hard work has been done, the players - veteran and rookie - have left their impressions on Pia Sundhage and soon it will be time to choose a roster for the upcoming Algarve Cup. The camp has been marked by some fantastic weather, a few sore muscles here and there, certainly some intense trainings and also some solid performances by some of the newer players. The players that make the Algarve roster will have about three weeks to prepare on their own before the team leaves for Europe while the rest will start focusing on the WPS training camps, which are set the open at the beginning of March. That of course does not include the few players who are still collegians, who have papers, labs and college hoops waiting for them back on campus.
