Thursday training at Starfire Sports Complex — photo reel

Cameras were limited the final bit of training, so I was only able to focus on one drill. Freddie Ljungberg was practicing free kicks against goalkeepers Derby Carillo and Chris Eylander.
Peter Vagenas and Patrick Ianni were the only other guys on the near end of the field. The rest of the team was on the far side working on finishing.

1. Ljungberg had some great strikes. Though he did break one of the plastic dudes in the wall.

2. Carillo stretches out but can’t get to a free kick that went wide.

3. Vagenas takes a shot from the mark. Clearly I focused on the ball in the foreground.

4. Eylander is back healthy and made some solid saves. I thought his head might hit a post at times.
