Last weekend, Cincinnati Soccer Talk was able to attend an FC Cincinnati training session at IMG Academy in Bradenton, Florida. The previous training session was a recovery session, but for the Friday session, the team would be back to full intensity. There was a buzz among the players as they came onto the field and began to prepare for the session. The weather was pleasant. The wind we saw for our earlier interviews had died down and the sun was starting to come out.
Before the training session, we were able to speak with Marco Dominguez (#21). Marco was very personable and excited to talk. He’s a bit of a joker and was teasing some of the other players we interviewed previously, so we, of course, decided to “put the shoe on the other foot” as the expression goes. Before we got started, he was giving Matt Shisler, the Team Manager, who nicely volunteered to hold the camera, a hard time for taking too long getting ready for the upcoming training.
