Now is the time in the tournament when a fitness and depth really start to impact the Women’s World Cup teams as everyone will be playing their third game in about nine days. The U.S. team did train in the afternoon on July 3 after arriving in Wolfsburg, with the players who played the most against Colombia taking a light jog and stretch while the reserves went a bit harder in misty rain.
Ali Krieger and Carli Lloyd (90 minutes in both games) were part of the group that did regeneration on the field.
