Inter Miami CF’s Inaugural Preseason Kicks Off
Preseason preparations began for the first time in Club history.
The players trained together alongside Head Coach Diego Alonso and the rest of their new coaching staff at Barry University.
After a series of warm-ups, the team jumped right into intense action with ball work, practicing passing and movement patterns with heavy tactical instruction from Alonso. The drills got players from every position involved, building through different phases with touches and passes available for defenders, midfielders and forwards alike.
Julián Carranza, the 19-year-old forward curled a first-time left-footed strike into the top-left corner of the net, leaving the keeper no chance to make a save.
Luis Robles and the other goalkeepers rotated, denying shots at the end of several passing moves. In addition to participating in the team drills, goalkeepers did extra work in a separate area, practicing both shot stopping and passing technique.
