Planes provide glimpse into private Sochi training sessions

SOCHI, Russia (AP) Perhaps keeping the ball on the ground should be the order from air traffic control rather than coaches in this southern Russian coastal resort.

A FIFA-assigned training ground, used so far by Australia and Cameroon at the Confederations Cup, is directly on the flight path into Sochi's airport.

After passing over the Black Sea, the final kilometer of the descent sees planes roar directly over the pitch before touching down on the runway.
