Visit to Old Trafford

The U.S. WNT has not gotten to train in its two first-round venues, but they squad has gotten to do a walk-throughs at both Hampden Park and today, at the Theatre of Dreams.

The USA players were like kids in a candy shop at Old Trafford, taking dozens of photos during the 15 minutes they were allowed on the pitch, and every member of the team is looking forward to the chance to play in one of the world's most famous soccer stadiums.

Unconfirmed fact (can a fact BE unconfirmed?) we heard is that this will be the first-ever women's international match at the stadium and the second-ever women's game as a Women's FA Cup Final was held at the venue in the 90s. So, that's pretty cool.

After the walk-through, more than half the team took advantage of a special tour of the Manchester United Museum at the stadium, which if you are a huge English Premier League fan, we HIGHLY suggest you check out at some point in your life. It is tremendous. Apparently, it gets more than 300,000 visitors a year.
