U.S. women are off to the Lodge to bunker down north of London

Its three-game send-off series behind it, the U.S. women's national team will spend 10 days training at the Lodge -- Tottenham's training center -- in Enfield, England, before heading to France on June 7 ahead of its Women's World Cup opener four days later against Thailand in Reims.

The USA finished its 10-game warm-up series with a 7-1-2 record after sweeping the final three games against South Africa (3-0), New Zealand (5-0) and Mexico (3-0). It outshot the three opponents, 69-9.

The training center is located on the site of Myddelton Farm in North London about 16 miles from London's city center. Spurs borrowed 25 million pounds ($31.6 million) in 2015 to build the complex.

The two-story Lodge includes 15 grass fields, a pool and hydrotherapy complex, an altitude room, a gym, specialized rehabilitation suites and high-end hotel-type rooms.

It serves as the home of Spurs' first team and academy. The Brazilian national team was the first guest a year ago, training at the facility before departing for the World Cup in Russia.

In 2019, Spurs moved into its new stadium, which has a capacity of 62,062.
