Solid catch from Ashlyn Harris over Alex Morgan as Heather Mitts defends
That's how Pia Sundhage described today's training when she gathered the players together before beginning practice.

A little over an hour and the team was out of there. The U.S. is tapering into it's huge match against Mexico on Friday night for a berth to the 2011 FIFA Women's World Cup.
