Updated: Last Training Before Oslo

8 Aug

Marcelo on the ball

Today the team had their final preparations for the match against Valarenga tomorrow.

This is going to be a fly by as I need to get to the gym for a session before working at my side hustle today. Going out with some friends, including one I haven’t seen since I lived in California 10 years ago.

Once again it was a tactical session. They’ve been doing a lot of positional work, which makes sense given a new coach and new tactics. The session ended with an 11-a-side match.

The team are currently on their way to Oslo. I’ll try to update with who traveled later.

Update: The following players made the trip to Oslo.

Goalkeepers:  Navas, Casilla and Rubén Yáñez.
Defenders: Varane, Nacho, Marcelo, Carvajal, Arbeloa and Danilo.
Midfielders: Kroos, James, Bale, Casemiro, Modric, Cheryshev, Isco, Illarra, Asensio, Marcos Llorente and Odegaard.
Forwards: Jesé, Lucas Vázquez and Borja Mayoral.

Cristiano, Benzema, Pepe, and Coentrao continue their recovery work and The Pony didn’t travel due to a knock he picked up in the Audi Cup.

Social Media Corner:

Marcelo, Isco, and Dani Carvajal all posted their good luck messages to Pacheco this morning.


¡Hala Madrid!
