SAO PAULO, Brazil - The U.S. National Team received a much-deserved day off from training at the World Cup on Wednesday.

The American players welcomed the opportunity to regenerate their bodies and be with friends and family during a precious day away from action. They earned it by defeating Ghana in their Group G opener in Natal on Monday, 2-1.

“We had one afternoon where we just had a chance to go around and walk a little bit, freshen up our legs," midfielder Alejandro Bedoya said on Tuesday night. "The cool thing is also having our family and friends here, some of them are coming along for the ride and (we are) sharing this experience with them.

"In Natal, we were able to spend some time with them. We can go to their hote, they can come to our hotel. That is very important, because mentally, you can’t just be focused the whole time, you need some time to wind down.”

Bedoya and company will get back to training for their Sunday meeting with Portugal in Manaus, on Thursday.
