A lot of heat in Benfica's first practice on American soil

Football

The team stepped on the turf of the Stanford University training field few hours after arriving in the United States of America.

Benfica carried out the first training session on American soil in the late afternoon of this Monday. In Stanford University training field, the practice was open to the Media in the first 15 minutes and it was possible to glimpse the 27 players named for the International Champions Cup.

The coaching staff led by Bruno Lage was the first to step onto the pitch, preparing it for the several exercises to be carried out during the training session. The players arrived shortly afterward. The session started with a little talk between the coaching staff and the squad in the middle of the pitch.

Benfica trains again this Tuesday, at 10:00 am local time (6:00 pm in Mainland Portugal).
