"I think that's a pretty strong emotion. That was an important game for both sides ... But it's a new game. Anytime [the] U.S. plays Mexico it's important and it's important for many different reasons. That's what rivalries are all about. I don't think anybody's going out looking for blood or revenge. It's USA-Mexico. It always has the same meaning and the same feel no matter when the game is played or what the circumstances are."
