On Sunday morning, we woke up prepared for a long travel day. After breakfast at the hotel and thanked Nacho, our Rosario host and tour guide, we boarded the bus for the four-hour trip from Rosario to Buenos Aires.
CLEMSON, S.C. – Former Tiger Manolo Sanchez is set to make his debut with the Puerto Rico national team on Sunday, May 22 against the United States National Team.
Saturday morning was the final match of our Argentina trip, against Rosario Central. When we arrived at the Rosario Central facilities, we were greeted by Jose Chamot, who played in three World Cups for Argentina, and is now a director with the club.
Friday morning was the final training session of our Argentina tour, and also the final training session of our 2015-16 season.
On Thursday morning, we played our first of two matches in Rosario. Before play began, we saw a group of people arrive, with a Clemson flag!
First on our agenda for this morning was saying goodbye to Paul, who has been our host/tour guide since we arrived in Argentina.
Tuesday began with our third scrimmage, this one against Estudiantes de La Plata. The setting for this game was different than any of the other clubs we have seen so far on the trip, as the La Plata neighborhood was in what we would call the "suburbs" of Buenos Aires.
We started our Monday morning with a training session. It was our last training session at the Argentinos Juniors facility, as we will leave Buenos Aires and head to Rosario tomorrow afternoon.
After a late night last night, we slept in a bit this morning. A group of staff and players went to mass at Buenos Aires Metropolitan Cathedral, which we saw earlier this week on our city tour, and which is the main Catholic Church in Buenos Aires.
The day started with our second scrimmage of the trip, a 1-1 draw against Racing Club de Avellaneda.
Our morning started out with a recovery and training session. We play our second scrimmage tomorrow morning, against Racing Club de Avellaneda.
We played our first of five scrimmages this morning, and although we did not win, it was a pretty good performance to open the trip.
