A lot of support from the Benfiquistas living in New York, this Friday, at the Rutgers University, in an open training session. Before the game against AC Milan, the last one at the International Champions Cup, the high temperature was dominant during the entire session.

From the 27-man squad called by Bruno Lage to the training camp in the USA, Ebuehi, Jardel, Cervi, Fejsa, Adel Taarabt, Chiquinho, Caio Lucas, Jota and Rafa did not step on the grass today, as they managed to complete a recovering program after the friendly against Baltimore and the previous one.

After California, this was the second open training session in the Tour.
