The U.S. WNT has had an excellent week of training north of Toronto and by the time the match on June 2 kicks off, will have had five days of training (in both rain and hot, humid sun) and one day off.

The U.S. team had a bit of a tougher training on Thursday morning, which featured some full-field scrimmaging and as well as some small-sided games, but will now taper into the match, which will be broadcast on ESPNews at 4:30 p.m. ET with Adrian Healey and Julie Foudy calling the action with Cat Whitehill on the sideline.

The match is sold out -- and has been for quite a while -- as more than 22,000 fans will pack BMO Field for a game that is generating tremendous buzz in Toronto. The match will mark the 14th five-digit crowd that the USA has played in front of since the end of the Olympics and the largest crowd ever to watch the two teams in Canada.

All the U.S. players trained this morning, including defender Kelley O'Hara, who participated in the entire practice after bouncing back well from an ankle injury suffered last weekend in NWSL play. She is still listed as day-to-day for Sunday's match.

After four days of quality training with the team, U.S. goalkeeper Hope Solo -- who was not named to the roster as she continues her comeback to international play from wrist surgery -- has left camp and headed to Washington, D.C., to take part in U.S....

The U.S. Women’s National Team will wear game jerseys and pre-game warm-ups embellished with a Boston Strong logo for the match on June 15 vs. Korea Republic at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Mass.

With the support of the Players' Association, all of the jerseys and warm-up tops will be signed by the players and auctioned off on ussoccer.com to benefit The Victim Relief Fund of The One Fund Boston. All proceeds will assist the families of the victims who were killed and the victims who were most seriously affected as a result of the tragic events during the Boston Marathon on April 15, 2013 and related events on April 18 and 19.

The U.S. team has been training outside of Boston since Tuesday and on Thursday trained in a downpour. Hopefully the weather will be better when the U.S. team holds a public training on Friday, June 14 at 11 a.m. inside Gillette Stadium. All fans are welcome and should enter through the Bank of America gate.

The USA has been training with 19 players -- three of them goalkeepers -- for four days as the three players currently based in Sweden -- Christen Press, Meghan Klingenberg and Yael Averbuch -- did not arrive until Thursday evening. Megan Rapinoe will arrive on Friday evening.

All the U.S. players are healthy and...

The U.S. Women’s National Team remained atop the latest FIFA Women’s World Ranking, which were released last week. The Americans are still ahead of Germany and Japan, followed by Brazil, Sweden and France.

The USA is close to breaking two new records.

The U.S. WNT are just six points away from overtaking its highest-ever number of points of 2233 (May 2010) and seven points away from overtaking the highest number of points ever achieved in the ranking, which was 2234 points for Germany in 2005. Just one win against a top-ranked team will see the U.S. Women break the record.

The FIFA Women’s World Ranking will be published on August 2, 2013, and the Americans do not have a game between now and then.
