Left our apartment and drove to “the country”. This is what everyone calls the Estudiantes training camp outside of La Plata. It is a large campus with perimeter guards, a preK through 6 school, a huge swimming pool, picnicking areas, field hockey areas and of course football facilities. It’s beautiful and serene. The grounds are neat and orderly.
So We drove to “the country” and met the boys after breakfast. Watched all of the teams emerging from the locker rooms. All played soccer tennis over benches, chairs or whatever.
The Argentinean players are SO good. I have never seen anything like this pool of players. They all are quite good; in fact, they are amazing by our standards.
Morning training was good. Several Argentinian players were mixes in and they played 3v1s, 4v2s, 4v4s and 11v11.
Did I mention “the country” has a half dozen dogs that roam the campus freely? They are totally cool. They jog with the players and sleep under the coaches. They are with us constantly.
