On what it means to play a Send-Off game in front of a pro-American crowd:
“I was a little disappointed the other night not to be able to play in a game like that because it’s not too often we have such pro-American crowds.”
“When we play in qualifiers, we always have a large contingent of passionate American fans, but more often than not our opponents’ fans are more prevalent in the stadium. So [the other night] was cool and we expect the same again. There’s no better way to head to South Africa than with a home game like that.”

(And maybe this doesn’t belong here….BUT Matt Mathai’s pictures (top, left) are really out-of-this-world. We’ll have a bunch more up to vote on shortly.)
Dropping another photo. They’re just so good.
