Set Day

As usual, ESPN set up shop in the team hotel this afternoon for a series of pre-game interviews. We normally incorporate these sessions either right before or after team meals to give the players a seamless schedule. Most of what they record will hit the editing room floor - or the recycle bin, as it were - but what they do use can be seen during the broadcasts either pre-game, at halftime, or as one of those fun little picture-in-picture shots during the action. They can also be posted on ESPN's website. So there's your behind-the-scenes tip for the day.

Also on hand is Washington Post reporter Steve Goff, who traveled to Guatemala and was rewarded with a set of one-on-one interviews. We're sure the Soccer Insider will have the goodies posted shortly.
