Last Practice (Swim?) in the Algarve

Today was the USA's last training in Portugal and it only featured six players who went to the field while the remainder of the squad did a pool workout to rest and regenerate the legs in advance of the Sweden match. The U.S. team will have played four tough games in eight days by the end of this tournament and winning the Algarve Cup is often a battle of team depth and attrition. Above are the six players who had a fun, albeit short training. We have to give the GKs props for winning two of the end of training finishing competitions while the field players won one. Below are the other players heading to the pool. It seems you have to wear swimming caps at this pool, so the U.S. players did. Michael Phelps, look out.
