Walk Through at Waikato

The U.S. team held its pre-game stadium training today at Noon at the 20,000-seat Waikato Stadium, running through a brisk 45-minute session to put the final touches on its Women's World Cup preparations. The USA opens its World Cup in Match #5 of the tournament against Japan at high Noon on Oct. 30. A light rain fell during the entire training, but it didn't bother the U.S. players, who were excited to finally see the venue for their first two Group C matches. The field is wide and pool-table flat, which should make for an entertaining match between two teams who like to keep the ball on the ground. Of course, fans can follow the game as it happens on's MatchTracker and watch highlights of the game on after its completion.
