The U.S. women's soccer team got to stand around in awe for a third time at these Olympics.
The Americans were given a walkthrough Thursday of their next venue ¯¯¯ St. James' Park, home of Newcastle United, where they will play New Zealand on Friday.
The players stood on the field for about 15 minutes, as they had done before at Old Trafford in Manchester and Hampden Park in Glasgow. Dozens of photos were taken, hugs were exchanged and some players did handstands.
One thing was different: Forward Abby Wambach wore extremely reflective sunglasses, so several players gathered around her, trying to take a photo of the stadium's enormous Olympic rings reflecting off her cool shades.
