As the sun goes down in Tokyo, the USA hits the field for training
The U.S. U-20 WNT arrived in Tokyo on Sept. 1 and hit the training field in the afternoon. The cooler evening temperatures with a nice breeze were much appreciated by the U.S. team that had been training and playing in hot, muggy weather this entire trip.
The players who played the most minutes against North Korea just did some stretching and regen work while the reserves had a tough training, leading into Sept. 2 which was a day off for the team.

The USA will have its one training at the game venue on the late morning of Sept. 3 at the Tokyo National Stadium and then it will be time to rest and focus for what will be a monster challenge against a strong, tough and talented Nigerian side on Sept. 4 in the first semifinal of the evening, kicking off at 4 p.m. local (3 a.m. ET) on ESPNU and ESPN3.
