It warmed up today for the USA's morning training...to 46 degrees. The sun tried to break through the clouds, but alas, in the end, failed to do so and by the finish of practice, temps plunged back into the lower 40s. Still, there was no rain, which was a plus during the 90 minute session. It was just the third training on the field for the USA in Germany and the players are starting to turn the jet lag corner, heading towards adjustment to this time zone. U.S. equipment manager Andrew Dessert also broke out the light blue training gear, which looked very nice on the crisp fall day. Forward Amy Rodriguez is scheduled to arrive in country tonight after tidying up some academic commitments at USC and the U.S. roster will be at full strength.
