Here are a a few pictures from today's training in Estadio Ricardo Saprissa.
We arrived at the stadium at about 5 p.m. to a minor crowd of people that had gathered by the locker room. They gave us a few spirited boos - all in good fun of course...
We waited while the Saprissa youth team vacated the field. The group of 16-year olds were pretty surprised to see the U.S. National Team waiting under the bleachers to get on the field.
We took the turf and immediately launched into training. An hour later we were totally done and treated to this awesome scene at dusk around the stadium.
Our photographer was rightly thrilled to have this kind of light closing out our session.
Players talked to media (we'll have a podcast later on) and we headed back on the bus for dinner. We'll be back in the stadium tomorrow for the customary session before the game.
