It was a brisk but gorgeous late afternoon as the clouds convened to provide a picturesque backdrop to this afternoon's training. The reserves from Saturday night took part in a spirited session that involved an intense 6 v. 6 game to big goals.
Tim Howard stood in the nets, eagerly returning from his one-game suspension to prepare for Wednesday night's encounter with Trinidad & Tobago. He is especially excited to be welcoming family and friends from Memphis, which is where he makes his home back here in the United States.
Fans will also be thrilled to see Oguchi Onyewu back on the training field. Gooch did some ball work with the trainers, and is still optimistic that he'll be fit for Wednesday.
