The pack continues to prepare the 1st scrimmage of the preseason with lots of intense exercises and demanding practices, contemplating a win to start with the right foot.
Jacksonville has been a great place to work on the new things Jason Kreis wants to implement to achieve the highly-desired MLS title. In addition, it has become a habitual ground of training for the Lions plans since last season served as a space for improving some aspects of the game.
According to Orlando City’s official sources the Lions were split in three groups: defenders, midfielders and forwards, emphasizing in communication to develop an excellent movement of the football.
With this type of training Kreis looks forward to increase chemistry on every part of the field, making all of the players to understand each other a complement their capacities with his fellow partners. In fact, dividing the team in sectors gives a more precise vision of each part, allowing to work on specific variables of the game such as effective combinations on the offensive, control of the game on the midfield, and improving the way defenders can build from the back.
On the other hand, Pierre da Silva, former Orlando City B, told on an interview how his main objective is having more playing time on the first team: “my goal for this year is to play more. I have to push it, every play, every time.”
In relation to Adam Grinwis, the goalkeeper said all has been great since he came to Orlando: “the city fantastic, the guys are very welcoming and I am enjoying it”. “I think this is a dream come true, I have been playing in the USL all this years and this have been always my goal, playing in the MLS”, he added.
