If the U.S. team needed any kind of lift following the defeat in Jamaica, they certainly found it from the fans in Columbus during Sunday's public training session at Crew Stadium.
More than 3,000 supporters turned up to watch the 75-minute session, cheering loudly as the team entered the field and keeping the energy level as the team went through a series of passing exercises and small-sided games before concluding with a finishing exercise.
U.S. head coach Jurgen Klinsmann and Clint Dempsey addressed the audience, then former U.S. international Frankie Hejduk took the mic to pump up the crowd like only Frankie can. Overall, it was a gorgeous morning in Columbus and the perfect tonic for a team gearing up for a huge match in two day's time.
If today's session is indication, the sold-out house Tuesday night it going to be rocking...
