The U.S. WNT took some pics with teams from the Jacksonville Futbol Club after training
On Tuesday afternoon, the U.S. WNT conducted its first full-field 11v11 scrimmage of training camp and the team looked pretty share. Of course, most of the players are coming off a long break and there are a few new players in the mix, but it was a great start to 2013 with the yellow team tying the black team, 1-1. Black got a goal from Kristie Mewis on a left-footed laser before yellow equalized on a quasi-breakaway/fight off the defender/roll the ball in from a stupidly sharp angle by Christen Press.
The team lifted weights on Tuesday morning, so they got Wednesday morning off after a full day on Tuesday, but will hit the field again on Wednesday afternoon. The squad will be getting Twitter updates from the MNT World Cup Qualifyer in Honduars during the training.
The USA opens 2013 on Sat., Feb. 9 against Scotland at EverBank Field, home to the Jacksonville Jaguars with a kickoff at 5 p.m. ET. Fans can watch the game live via a video webstream on ussoccer.com or follow along on ussoccer.com's MatchTracker or on Twitter @ussoccer_wnt.
