U.S. National Team Open Training Session

In preparation for their September 9th World Cup qualifying game against Jamaica in Columbus, Ohio, the U.S. men’s national team held an open training session this morning at Crew Stadium.  The Yanks will be looking to avenge Friday’s 2-1 loss in Kingston.

Starting goalie Tim Howard did not participate due to a lower-leg contusion, but he is still expected to play on Tuesday.  Head coach Jurgen Klinsmann lead the team through various drills, including taking part in a 5v2 keep away game.  He spent most of his time with the forwards during the finishing drills, getting quite angered whenever they received bad balls from the midfielders.

Crew brand ambassador and former U.S. international Frankie Hejduk was also on hand to pump up the crowd and thank everyone for coming out.

I took my camera along and snapped some pictures of the team and the temporary additions to the stadium:
