Bradley Press Conference

bob-bradleyIf you want to listen to a conference call with USMNT Head Coach Bob Bradley from Miami you can check it out on the USSOCCER website.  Tim Howard was also on the call.

My notes from the call:

  • They are currently training in Miami.
  • They will not train in Mexico, they will get there late Tuesday and not go to Mexico City till the last second possible.
  • Bradley talks about altitude, consulted experts from the Olympic committee.
  • They believe its either get fully acclimated in about 10 days or spend as little time as possible in the altitude
  • 14 guys are currently in Miami. Guys yet to arrive are MB JA BF BC RC SH
  • Giovanni Di Santos is of concern.  Had a very good gold cup, but we know his tendencies now… prefers his left foot a lot. Tim Howard not scared.
  • Gold Cup was disappointing but most player were not involved and don’t think it is a problem.
  • Tim Howard has never been to Azteca but has played at much more intimidating venues and so have his teammates.
  • Win doesn’t guarantee top seed in WC
  • Tim doesn’t care about seeding, everyone in the WC will be a challenge.

The total call is very long this is only about half of it.
