Did you know that the Germans love soccer so much that the busses even have soccer balls on them? Well, at least the U.S. team bus does, which took the team to an afternoon training today that was conducted in a steady drizzle, making the action a little fast and slippery. The players seemed to enjoy it despite the cold, as the the field was in excellent condition. The water really didn't impact training too much, outside of drenching the U.S. players to the bone. Truth be told, it was a gloomy day in Munich and the forcast is for more showers for the USA's entire stay in Germany so the players better get used to it. As U.S. head coach Pia Sundhage says, "any day on a soccer field is a good day," and we can't agree more. Especially when you are getting ready to play Germany.
