GLASGOW, Scotland (AP) — The U.S. women's soccer team is in control of its group after an opening win at the Olympics — and that called for some relaxation.
The team spent Thursday doing yoga and went back to Hampden Park in Glasgow to watch the Japanese men upset Spain. Then came a team dinner of Italian food.
One player not a full-go was Shannon Boxx, who injured a hamstring in Wednesday's 4-2 victory over France. Coach Pia Sundhage said Boxx was to meet with the trainers to figure out a rehab plan to see if the midfielder can play Saturday against Colombia.
The players won't get to march in Friday's opening ceremony in London, but they plan to watch it on television — while wearing the official opening ceremony outfits sent to all the U.S. athletes.
