Chicago forward David Accam says he is happy for the break given to them by the club after a busy couple of weeks.
Accam played a pair of friendlies with the Black Stars against El Tri of Mexico on June 28 in Houston and July 1 against the Yanks of US in East Hartford, Connecticut, before rejoining the Fire for a match in Portland on July 5.
With the Black Stars, Accam came off the bench and played 31 minutes in the 1-0 loss to Mexico. He started, but was subbed out at halftime against the US in a 2-1 American win. Then Accam traveled from East Coast to West Coast to play in Portland.
After playing out a tough draw in Portland, the Fire were off from training for six days.
“I went out with my friends, just taking it easy with my friends and family,” Accam said. “I didn’t do much. I just wanted to rest and hang out with my friends and family.”
“You want to be playing every time, but also the break is good,” Accam said. “Everyone is happy to come back with more energy.”
Accam has registered 7 assists and 10 goals for the Fire in the ongoing MLS season.
