"Playing Mexico in a sold-out stadium in Mexico City is an awesome opportunity for our guys. So I want them to really embrace that moment, go on the field, be confident and give [Mexico] a real game, eye-to-eye, and challenge them. We're here not only to get a result. We want to get a win. That's our goal. But we have a lot of respect for Mexico. Good side, good players, fantastic coach. But we come here for the battle and we're ready for it."
-- U.S. coach Jurgen Klinsmann on the eve the USA's clash with Mexico.
