#USMNT Social Sphere: São Paulo to Manaus

As the #USMNT seeks to capitalize on its 2-1 victory over Ghana, the players prepared for Portugal this week in São Paulo. After a regeneration session on Tuesday and a day off Wednesday, training resumed in earnest.

  And the prep work continued Thursday morning at São Paulo FC's Barra Funda training center.

After practice, #USMNT winger Brad Davis shared how he is fine tuning his game for Sunday.

Tuesday's regen and Wednesday's time off,  helped #USMNT captain Clint Dempsey recharge and get accustomed to playing with a broken nose, something he said kept him from properly breathing during the game versus Ghana. Dempsey will most likely play without a protective mask, but a fan familiar with his situation will be there in case the captain has an about face.

With the match already on the weekend horizon, eager fans are already gearing up for Sunday's showdown.

  Local watering holes across the country are preparing for the big game and hope to #SeeYouSunday.

Back in Brazil, the team was in high spirits before its trip into the humid heart of the Amazon jungle. When the team captain, who has a broken beak, is photo bombing the coach, you know times are good. #Dempseying > #VanPersieing.

And the good times continued on the #USMNT's coach while en route to Guarulhos airport.

And with that, the team settled in for the four hour flight to Manaus.

Sorry Matt Besler, had to do it to you. Feel free to blame Mix Diskerud.
