CARY, N.C. (May 10, 2006) - The U.S. Men's National Team has officially begun preparations for the 2006 FIFA World Cup beg, albeit in a rather quiet style. Nineteen players came from across the U.S. and Europe to enter the team's base of operations in Cary, N.C., with the first training session scheduled for Thursday afternoon. Chris Albright and Landon Donovan will arrive on Thursday following their match against FC Dallas on Wednesday night, with Steve Cherundolo and Kasey Keller rounding out the group May 14 after the end of the Bundesliga season. The U.S. will spend 11 days in Cary before heading to Nashville to kick off the Send-Off Series on May 23 vs. Morocco.
