London Calling

Whew! It feels like so long since you last heard from us, but thankfully MNT camp is getting back into gear in the country where soccer was born. And if you were disappointed by our abbreviated outing in Krakow, dry those tears! We're going to be blogging for a solid month as the team moves towards friendlies with England, Spain, Argentina and the start of World Cup Qualifying with Barbados.

The guys (Bob Bradley has named 22 players for next week's game) have already begun arriving, touching down in Heathrow from all over the world. Players have come from the U.S., from continental Europe, and a few were even lucky enough to make the short trip by car. Not much on the agenda for today: the usual meet and greet, distribution of gear, and light workout in the pool will be capped off by the first official team meal tonight.

England is buzzing right now after last night's Champions League Final, and there will be a lot going on this week as the U.S. heads towards next Wednesday's game against England at Wembley stadium...

Feilhaber was replaced by Edu? I like Edu, but I was looking forward to seeing the Bradley/Feilhaber combination for the first time in some time.

Great to have you back, looking forward to three big friendlies, and the barbados game (which I will be attending) as well as having the blog the whole time. Should be a good month!
