The U.S. had its pre-match training today at the Tokyo National Stadium, which will host both semifinal matches, and it certainly met with their approval. The 48,000-seat venue was built for the 1964 Summer Olympics and is in remarkably good shape for such an old venue.
The field is in fantastic condition and big crowds are expected for both matches with the bigger of course filing in to watch the Japan-Germany game at 7:30 p.m. local.
The USA's match kicks off at 4 p.m. local (3 a.m. ET) and coverage starts on ESPNU and ESPN3 at 2:50 a.m. ET. Fans can also follow along on ussoccer.com's MatchTracker and on Twitter at ussoccer_YNT.
The bench seats are comfy at Tokyo National Stadium. Crystal Dunn wanted one for her apartment at college.
