The team has returned from the first training of camp, a brief 60-minute session that took place at Watford's training ground. The lovely facility has lots of beautiful soccer fields (as you would probably expect) and is also the home of MNT defender Jay DeMerit, who plays his club ball at the League Championship side.
With 15 players available to participate, the went through a light warmup before the guys took part in a few passing drills. The session concluded with a small sided 6 v 6 game with goalkeepers. Not too hard, but it was good to see the guys back out on the field.
Before leaving, Tim Howard and Bob Bradley spoke to a gathered crowd of journalists about the end of the season, the form of the U.S. team, and the excitement of going into a game against England at Wembley. Listen to the full podcast here...
