The United States national team men had gathered in their Tampa hotel to watch the first two days of European Championships – most of them, anyway.
Today? Not so much.
They have business ahead, and it started with a long flight Sunday from Florida into Guatemala.
That flight, in fact, was among the reasons U.S. Soccer picked Tampa for Friday’s qualifier opener. Better to start somewhere in the southeast rather than adding another 2-4 hours to a lengthy travel day.
But enough about logistics. The whole reason for this post was to show you Maurice Edu’s picture, one he shared Sunday via Twitter. (That’s midfield mate Jermaine Jones, left, with Edu.)
