NOTEBOOK: MNT Prioritizing Altitude Training Ahead of June World Cup Qualifiers
ussoccer.com

With a few weeks having passed since the U.S. Men’s National Team’s 1-1 World Cup Qualifying draw in Panama, head coach Bruce Arena indicated Thursday that he and his staff have been working towards June’s all-important matches against Trinidad & Tobago and at Mexico.

To that end, Arena spoke about the decision to USA-Trinidad & Tobago, Presented by Liberty Mutual at 5,100 feet above sea level on June in Commerce City, Colo., in order to prepare for the 7,300 feet of elevation they’ll experience see when visiting Mexico at Estadio Azteca three days later.

“We think that we have a better chance of being acclimatized with two weeks of training and following procedures that we think will help our players adjust,” Arena said. “We want to have our best chance to leave Mexico City and Denver with some points.”

MNT training camp will open at the home of the Colorado Rapids towards the end of May, with a still to be announced friendly scheduled prior to the qualifier against Trinidad & Tobago.

Arena said he and his staff have gathered different opinions on how to best handle altitude training, though he has been through this before. During the 2005 Hexagonal, the U.S. MNT’s domestic-based players took part in a lengthy, late-winter camp in Colorado Springs, Colo., prior to heading to Azteca at the end of March.

Though the altitude training certainly accounted for one factor, the conditions in Colorado towards the end of winter couldn’t replicate the heat and air quality of what the team experienced on an early Sunday afternoon at Azteca. The U.S. surrendered two early goals and could never completely claw back in a 2-1 defeat on March 27, 2005.

“When we stepped on the field in Mexico City, it was about 85 degrees at noon with pollution and everything else. There’s a lot of variables you have to throw in there, and we’re going to try and get a little bit closer this time around.”

The U.S. Soccer Federation, Canadian Soccer Association and the Federación Mexicana de Fútbol announced Monday their intention to submit a unified bid to host the 2026 FIFA World Cup.

Asked about the difference in time between when the U.S. held the 1994 FIFA World Cup and the potential to host in 2026, Arena said, “I think there are two different stories – in 1994 I think the U.S. was looked at as this emerging frontier in the game and FIFA wanted to bring the U.S. into the world’s game. I think in 2026 we’re going to be fully emerged into the game and a big player. [Should we host] I think 2026 will be the time where we’re going to start talking about winning the World Cup. It wasn’t going to be in 1994, it wasn’t going to be in 2010, but 2026 can be our time. I think that’s the difference.”

Christian Pulisic

 Following this week’s events in Germany that saw explosions occur outside the Borussia Dortmund team bus as it headed to Signal Iduna Park for the first leg of their UEFA Champions League Quarterfinal tie with Monaco, Arena was asked if he and his coaching staff had spoken with MNT and BVB midfielder Christian Pulisic.

“We’ve had contact with him. I actually left him a message today. I haven’t personally spoken to him, but we had contact with him through text during the incident and after the incident. He’s okay. Again I don’t know the exact circumstances around the bombs going off, but I’m sure it was very hectic, very scary and I’m sure it disrupted the team in a lot of ways. It’s never easy, hopefully in time all those people will recover.”

Food for thoughts.

On the 8th of October 2008, Joe Public FC (Eastern Lions) were 1-0 winners over Cancun's based Club Atlante FC in the CONCACAF Champions League (CCL). The local outfit became the first ever Club from T&T and to an extent, the Caribbean region to have ever won a game on Mexican soil. Cancun however, is only 33' feet above sea level.

That same year the Eastern Lions also got pulsating CCL wins (one on U.S territory) against the New England Revolution which saw them advancing 6:1 on aggregate. NE Revs home games are played at the Gillette Stadium which has a 289' feet elevation.

Speaking of Joe Public, their former winger Hayden Tinto were also the first T&T player to have ever scored a goal at the Estadio Azteca Stadium in Mexico City. It was June the 11th 2009 in-font of 80,000 strong and inspired by the ageless Cuauhtemoc Blanco, Andres Guardado, Nery Castillo, Guillermo Franco and Giovani Dos Santos. Mexico had to dig deep after taking the lead within 59 seconds of the start to rally back 2-1 winners.

The Soca Warriors rode the pressure and gradually got back into the match. They tied it up in injury time at the end of the first half when Hayden Tinto intercepted a bad pass and beat two defenders and goalkeeper Oscar Perez with a well-judged and well-taken shot. The lead lasted less than three minutes into the second half, Oscar Rojas unleashed a fearsome shot from 30 yards that found the upper right corner of the net. Clayton Ince was left helpless.

On the 8th of November 2014, the Trinidad and Tobago Women’s National Senior Team managed a goalless draw in Quito, Ecuador, which is 9,350 feet above sea level—and comfortably 2,000 feet higher than the Azteca.

This is very encouraging !!!!!!!!!

USA is very possible to beat, we just have to not give them chance to gain confidence in the game cause they will get better during it.

Take out Dempsey, Pulisic and maybe Altidore, the rest of players is not anything special.

Possible game in London a few days before we play Honduras  :thinking:
http://wired868.com/2017/06/15/ttfa-confirm-sierra-leone-talks-for-august-friendly-african-nation-ranked-113-by-fifa/

Did we move our HOME WORLD CUP QUALIFIER FIXTURE to London?

Why would we even entertain the thought of playing a practice match AWAY FROM HOME in alleged preparation for a home WCQ match?  And against Sierra Leone. Do they play like Honduras?  If we do take this match, will ALL the players be flying first class to help relieve jet lag?

Is actions like these that cause people to claim that the TTFA president is, and has been actively sabotaging the team all along and is using the senior men's national team for his personal gain

He really on the sabotage trip...

Second team with no camp, flying to china and South America with Hart, but first team gets zero quality friendlies for warm up

Juco mountain team for practice, unselected players, suspension for Cato, now Sierre leone friendly in London compounding jet lag and team totally different in style to opponents, instead of playing friendly at home

The dictator pockets money under the table, team loses ability to properly prepare, his objective is achieved, ensure TT does not qualify, TT will not upset the pecking order in concacaf - all equates to a house negro mentality, selling out his people for a number in his bank account

If we could get a fit Glenn and Cummings it would help we a lot and time to cap Noah Powder before we lose him to de USA.

Nathan Lewis is a good find.
