Countdown to Japan

The U.S. team had two trainings today, working on some possession and set plays in the morning and then scrimmaging in the afternoon. It's pretty much been eat, sleep and play soccer (and studying their school work) since the team arrived on the morning of Oct. 25, but the young U.S. team is all about business as the U-17 Women's World Cup opener draws closer. The team's official training site at the Diocesan School for Girls has been excellent, with the field in excellent shape and the local organizers eager to make the team's stay as pleasant as possible. It's been raining on and off since the team arrived in Hamilton, but fortunately the off has been during training and the on has been when the team is at the hotel. The players have another full day tomorrow with training in the morning and some meetings with FIFA officials in the afternoon.
