Training at QEII Park

The U.S. U-17s trained this evening at 7 p.m., getting in the standard pre-game 45-minute session at the game venue QEII Park, although the practice was two games before the match instead of the usual one. The training was at 7 p.m. -- game time for the match against Germany -- and it was a bit chilly out, but considering the weather in Christchurch before the USA got here (rain, wind, some hail), the weather was perfect for soccer and the lots of running that will surely be done by both nations on Thursday. The field is in excellent shape at the half oval stadium that was constructed in 1974 and renovated in 2007.
