Stanford men's soccer concluded the competitive part of its 2014 spring session with a 4-2 victory this past Saturday over Sacramento Republic FC at Laird Q. Cagan Stadium.
The Cardinal jumped ahead quickly with three first-half goals, and by the end of things had gotten a pair of goals each from Jordan Morris and Eric Verso while Austin Meyer picked up a key assist with some deft setup play.
In the latest video update, head coach Jeremy Gunn discusses his satisfaction with the team's performance against the USL Pro side, in particular the rapidly-growing chemistry of the squad in the attacking third.
As the Cardinal wraps up its spring training session with some more workouts ahead of this weekend's alumni match, it has had the opportunity to welcome some temporary neighbors to the Cagan Stadium area this week. The U.S. Men's National Team reported to its pre-World Cup training camp Wednesday, and the Cardinal players have had the unique chance to meet and talk shop with the Yanks ahead of their World Cup tuneup May 27 against Azerbaijan at Candlestick Park.
