Quick Training Camp Notes

A larger number of press than usual at USMNT camp today in Miami which tells us about the attention this “summer of soccer” has created.

Several of the media members present are attending training here in Miami tomorrow morning and then flying to Mexico City for game. Several others are staying in this area to cover the game off of Television. In twenty plus years of following the national team, their has rarely been this level of interest and enthusiasm both from the media and fans before a non World Cup match. This is further proof that the world’s game has arrived stateside.

Bob Bradley and Carlos Bocanerga addressed the media after a short morning practice session. Bradley stated that Azteca was the toughest venue to play away from home in CONCACAF. Mike Sorber spoke to the media in Spanish. Marcelo Balboa, who will be the color commentator for MUN2 was also at practice and that drew a few old time USMNT fans who came to watch training into autograph seekers.

Oguchi Onyewu spoke to us just outside the team bus. Look for more coverage from my colleague Juan Arango and myself on Goal.com later today, as well as a pre-game podcast and more practice notes a little later here at MLS Talk.
