"Bad result. I never like to lose a game, but a very good performance. I was pleased with the way the players tried to implement all the work we did on the training field for a week. ... The way they combined. The way people were looking for each other. And the way they passed their way out of difficult tight spaces was good to see."
-- U.S. coach Jurgen Klinsmann after the 1-0 loss to Costa Rica on Friday.
