Avenue Paulista-Following their 2-1 victory on Saturday over fellow 2014 FIFA World Cup participants Nigeria, the USA national team arrived in Brazil this Monday morning.

From Guarulhos airport in Sao Paulo, the team transferred to their hotel ,the Tivoli Resort on Paulista Avenue. The USA team will be training at their designated site at Barra Funda CT.

“It’s great to be here. There are a lot of leaders on our team. There are some good kids coming up and we are feeling good following our three recent wins. The World Cup is different, so we have to make sure we’re ready,” said Clint Dempsey.

The team’s camp is surrounded with a heavy security presence from both the Copa Commando,the Policia and the Special Forces of the Brazilian army.

Press attempts to get pictures of the players on their way to the team’s first training session on Monday were hampered by  security arrangements which kept Jurgen Klinsmann’s team out of the public eye.
