Olympics 2012: Win-or-else time for U.S. soccer women
After their practice, the Americans got a tour of St. James’ Park, home of Newcastle United, the latest classic British stadium to host the team during these Olympics.
The tour is officially known as “familiarization,” but it mainly consists of the players standing on the field in awe of their surroundings. On Thursday, there were hugs, handstands and dozens of photos, including several players who tried to capture the Olympic rings reflecting off Wambach’s sunglasses.
If they want the tours to continue, the Americans will need to win Friday, be it in regular time, extra time or with those dreaded penalty kicks. They’ve been practicing PKs for weeks, just in case.
“We know that if it goes into overtime we can handle ourselves,” Cheney said. “And we’ve shown that we can win PKs and we’re in confident in that — but we don’t even think about it.”
