"This is why we play teams like Belgium, like Germany, like Russia or like Italy because there's so much that you can read from those games. Obviously you want to win them and when you lose them it's not such a big pleasure, but I'd rather play Belgium 10 more times than El Salvador 100 times because that's where you learn."
-- U.S. coach Jurgen Klinsmann after losing, 4-2, to Belgium on Wednesday. (The USA has yet to play El Salvador since Klinsmann took charge in 2011. It lost to Belgium, 1-0, in Brussels in Klinsmann's third game at the helm.) (USSoccer.com)
