A Visit from Sundhage

U.S. Women's National Team head coach Pia Sundhage made the very long journey from Sweden to Chile for the USA's semifinal game and will be here through Sunday's final match (then she'll fly straight to Los Angeles ahead of the WNT's Achieve Your Gold Tour game against China).

It was a post-game surprise for the U.S. players, who were properly introduced on the field after the victorty. Sundhage, who had to take a later flight to Santiago than the rest of the team, addressed the team a little more informally after dinner - first offering her congratulations on last night's win and then, in keeping with her tradition, singing a little bit. Her selection was a bit of a change from the standard Dylan - Tina Turner's Simply the Best.

We're obviously thrilled to have Pia as part of our team through Sunday!
