Briceño, Cuello join camp ahead of Thursday's scrimmage

Chivas USA held its second full day of training this morning at the Multigol complex in Guadalajara, during which Preki took the opportunity to prepare his squad for tomorrow's scrimmage vs. Tapatío, Chivas de Gudalajara's Primera 'A' (second-tier) side.

New faces continue to join the Red-and-White's ten-day preseason camp here: today the team was joined by Uruguayan FW Román Cuello and Mexican DF Omar Briceño. Both trialists took part in an 11-v-11 intrasquad scrimmage that also featured the trio that began training yesterday: DF Javier Ledesma, MF Diego Scotti and FW Eduardo Lillingston.

After training, players and coaching staff retired to their rooms at the team hotel, where most planned to watch Chivas de Guadalajara's group opener vs. Lanús of Argentina in the 2009 Copa Libertadores. In the evening, the team is scheduled to hold a team dinner while watching the USA-Mexico World Cup qualifier live from Columbus.

Thursday morning, Chivas USA will scrimmage Tapatío at 10 a.m. local time (8 a.m. PT) at Multigol. A match report and assorted notes will be available here and at
