Scrimmage Ahead

By Asif Hossain

Head coach Ryan Nelsen arrived in camp Saturday night as was expected. The former New Zealand captain, who finished his playing career last week at Queens Park Rangers of the English top flight, steps into a second day in Orlando that should see things heat up for the Reds on this visit to the sunshine state.

Players are expected to take part in a 60-minute (two 30-minute halves) scrimmage with an emphasis on shape. A lot has been said about what type of formation and style Nelsen prefers. Sunday morning will provide a slight glimpse of that, while the overall squad is still getting ironed out by the technical staff headed by president and general manager Kevin Payne.

Updates from Sunday's training session will be provided via Twitter, Instagram, YouTube & Facebook.

On Saturday, Toronto had its first training session in Orlando. The goalkeepers were thrilled to be back on a grass surface and made the most of it in this exercise below:
