With the first two national team training sessions already finished, Coach Thomas Dooley admitted that there are still some aspects he would like to change especially for his players.
"There should be something to be changed so that the players are more comfortable and can concentrate on the training 100% and not on anything else," said Dooley. "It's a little more work and a little more difficult, but in the end, the players can do a better job."
Dooley also added that he enjoys watching the games, as it helps him to focus on some players rather than seeing a number of players in training.
"It helps a lot watching the games (in the UFL) because now I focus on two-three players on the field," said Dooley. "It's a little bit easier for me to evaluate somebody."
The American coach also noted he will reduce the training pool heading to the international friendly against Malaysia and Azerbaijan, but also praised the players who attended the training sessions.
"It was great to see them in training, but now slowly but surely, we'll cut it (heading to the friendlies)," noted Dooley. "We will talk that with the players on what we need to do for the match."
