On a balmy afternoon in Washington, D.C., the Galaxy took the field for the final time before tomorrow's match against D.C. United at RFK Stadium. The heat and humidity were high as expected with the temperature hovering around the low 90s during the training session.
Assistant Coach Cobi Jones led the players on a warm up that increased in intensity in order to slowly warm up the players' muscles despite the heat. Then, it was on to 5v2 with two groups featuring the Serie A and Ghanaian Third Division.
Next, the players split up into two teams of eight for a possession game that featured Juninho and Chris Birchall each taking turns as the neutral player. In spite of the weather, the players were able to maintain a high level through the exercise.
Finally, it was the finishing touches reviewing freekicks and cornerkicks before the team headed to RFK Stadium for a quick walk through on the match field. It was in good condition considering there was a game on Thursday night. In fact, the field will have one last mowing tomorrow morning before the game.
