We've arrived safe and sound in Costa Rica after our 150 minute flight from Miami International. Tim Howard met us at the airport, while Eric Lihaj also made the trip with the team. The last minute dash to the plane by Jonathan Bornstein took our traveling total up to 21 players.
After touching down in Costa Rica we hopped on the 40 minute bus ride from the airport into San José.
The guys are getting settled in the hotel and we've got a few hours until our 4:00 departure for training at Estadio Saprissa. Since the game is on turf, FIFA regulations allow us to have two days to train in the stadium, meaning we'll take today and tomorrow to train on the same field we'll be playing on Wednesday night.
That's about it for now, make sure you check out today's episode of Studio 90 on ussoccer.com.
