After nearly two weeks training at Stanford University, the U.S. men's national team held its last Bay Area training session at Candlestick Park. Open to the public, a sizable crowd of supporters filled the field-level grandstand for the event, and Center Line Soccer photographer Lyndsay Radnedge was there to shoot all the action.

The entire 23-man roster was there, and head coach Jurgen Klinsmann had the squad broken into two groups during the session. The USMNT will play three matches in its 'Send-Off Series', which kicks off with USA vs. Azerbaijan, powered by Yingli Solar, at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, May 27th, at Candlestick Park in San Francisco. Tuesday's game will be preceded by an American Outlaws tailgate party that begins at 3:00 p.m. outside the stadium. And if you still don't have a ticket, be sure to arrive early!
The USA then hosts Turkey at 2 p.m. ET on Sunday, June 1st, at Red Bull Arena in Harrison, New Jersey, before traveling to Jacksonville, Florida, to face Nigeria on June 7th at 6 p.m. ET at EverBank Field. All three Send-Off Series matches will be broadcast live on ESPN2, WatchESPN, UniMas and ESPN Deportes Radio. Fans can also follow the games live on Twitter @ussoccer.
