At the end of another training session at the University of Texas, San Antonio, we caught up with Bobby De Cordova-Reid in the San Antonio sunshine.

Bobby's certainly packed his shooting boots - netting some impressive strikes at our training base - and he began by explaining how well City's attacking players have been combining early on in the tour.

“It was nice, and it was nice for you to catch it on camera as well,” he said of one particular effort (below).

“Hopefully I can score a few more like that in games as well!

“In the final third, we want to be creative and have a bit of freedom - that’s what we’re trying to do here. Hopefully, that will help us to please the crowd and score a lot of goals.”

The Bluebirds’ meeting with San Antonio has generated plenty of excitement stateside, with a passionate home crowd expected at Toyota Field.

Ahead of the game, Bobby explained how City’s pre-season fixtures, and tour as a whole, will benefit Neil Warnock’s men.

“It’s good for the lads to get away, bond together in a different environment and enjoy it,” he continued.

“We’ve got a few games to play too, so hopefully we can get good results, but also build up our fitness. It will be enjoyable to get back out onto the pitch and line up alongside the lads.”
