The conditions at today's training session were not ideal. Far from it (look at above picture).
But the guys (blog staff included, well, sort of) toughed it out and trained outside in the rain. The guys started the session by working on some head-to-head drills, which consisted of one player sending a lob to a player about 30 yards away and then running toward him to prevent him from getting a clean shot on goal.
After that, the group was split into two for a finishing drill that turned very competitive. Each time someone would score, the entire side would loudly cheer in the direction of the other team. The rain was coming down hard at this point and we were trying to stay dry underneath a tent located on the opposite of the field (told you we sort of toughed it out) and were unable to tell who won. The winners did celebrate loudly however.
The day came to an end with the players talking to the media and the group being split into three for a game of keep away. Speaking with the crew from Telemundo, Bruce said that Dema Kovalenko, who has been training at full speed for most of the month could feature this weekend while Stefani Miglioranzi will likely not be available for the final two games of the regular season but could return for the club's first playoff game.
Be cause of the rain, and our location, today's photos are a bit grainy and shot from a distance.
