USA back in training as England falls to Uruguay

Tags: England, Sony Handycam ®, USA

450904664It was a cold night in Sao Paulo on Thursday as Uruguay pushed England to the brink of elimination from the World Cup with a 2-1 victory at Arena de Sao Paulo. Luis Suarez scored both goals, including a winner off the flicked head of his club teammate Steven Gerrard, to boost Uruguay’s chances of a place in the Round of 16.

Earlier on Thursday in Sao Paulo, the U.S. national team went through the first training session since Monday’s win against Ghana and all anybody wanted to talk about was Cristiano Ronaldo. Jermaine Jones and Fabian Johnson were among the U.S. players to field questions about how to stop the Real Madrid superstar, and neither seem fazed by the possibility of being matched up with a player considered one of the best, if not the best, player in the world.

On the U.S. injury front, Jozy Altidore’s status for Sunday’s match against Portugal was confirmed and he will miss the match with a strained left hamstring. It remains unclear whether he can recover from the injury in time to play any part in the rest of the tournament, but with him missing the Portugal match, Jurgen Klinsmann will need to turn to one of his forwards to pick up the slack.

The day in Sao Paulo was overcast and in the 60s, likely to be a far cry from what the Americans can expect in Manaus on Sunday. Forecasts call for temperatures to be in the mid-80s with a chance of thunderstorms.

You can’t put too much stock into World Cup weather forecasts though. Natal was blanketed by rain the day before and day after the U.S. defeated Ghana there, but the match itself was played in weather so dry that stadium sprinklers were used to wet the playing surface.

The U.S. team will enjoy the cooler weather of Sao Paulo for at least another day before taking the lengthy trek to the Amazon this weekend for its visit to Manaus, and a date with Ronaldo and Portugal.
