Just seconds into the first of the 4 v 4 games during today's training, Tobin Heath pulled off a move that really only Tobin (and your top Brazilians) can do. Squared up on Heather O'Reilly, she put her foot on the ball, pulled it behind her leg and in one motion swept it through O'Reilly's legs, eliciting whoops and hollers from her teammates. Now, after getting nutmegged, was Heather going to let Tobin speed away with the ball? We think not. She basically put an MMA arm bar on young Heath as both tumbled to the ground. Still, after training, O'Reilly could do nothing but gives props to her teammate. "That was just sick," said O'Reilly, pretty much summing it up.
"Why, I oughta...!"
