Florida Cup 2015: Werkself goes to work

As monsoon-like as the weather was Monday afternoon, forcing both Bundesliga clubs to relocate their afternoon training sessions to indoor facilities, that’s how lovely Tuesday morning was in the greater Orlando area, providing ideal conditions for kicking the ball around.

Or for watching and taking photos of professionals kicking balls around, I suppose.

The Bundesliga Fanatic made its way to the Orlando Omni Resort at Championsgate in time to catch Bayer Leverkusen’s morning training session. Please enjoy a few images from what we saw on site.
