LA MANGA, Spain --
TRAINING REPORT: As you would with the weather in Dallas, if you don't like the weather in La Manga, Spain, just wait a few minutes.

However, after playing three matches in five days, the team had six young players and the goalkeepers train on the field today and put the rest of the players to work in the gym.
