Christine Nairn shows the proper form to hit a volley during U.S. training in Bielefeld
The U.S. U-20 WNT hit the field today for the first time since the 5-0 win over Switzerland on July 17 and had a great practice in beautiful weather here in Bielefeld, venue for the USA's final Group D match against the Korea Republic on Wednesday. All the players are healthy, if a bit tired from the two group games and the travel, but after the stadium training tomorrow the squad should be fully regenerated and ready to take on the skillful Koreans. The USA is carrying just one yellow card into the match (that to Meg Morris) so no starters are in danger of suspension for the quarterfinals should the Americans advance.
