Day One Done

Remember how you feel when you get back to work the first day after the holidays? A little sluggish, perhaps? Now imagine going full speed for just under two hours with an international soccer game just 19 days away with the entire national team coaching staff, two MLS coaches and a group of 'A' license candidates scrutinizing your every move. Welcome to Day One in Carson.

Twenty-two players took the field this morning, including seasoned veterans of January camps like Danny Califf and four players - Geoff Cameron, Jack Jewsbury, Robbie Rogers and Chris Wingert - making their debut with the full team. It was mostly technical work and fitness, ending with a game to goal from 18 to 18. After lunch, the players head to Santa Monica for physicals, and then it's back to work tomorrow morning.

Check back on later this evening for a look back at today's session.
