Years in the Making

During and after breakfast this morning, the team watched a video that was made about last year's trip to Uruguay and Argentina. Many of the players on this World Cup squad were there, and they remember the travel, the training and the conditions that they went through for that experience. Giving up a stoppage time goal against Argentina in the tournament final was not something that the team wants to go through again.

The video was a reminder of all the hard work the team has put in over the past two years that culminates here on the world stage. (You can watch the video here.) It was also an opportunity to tease midfielder Jared Jeffrey about the long hair he used to sport.
