"For us, the reality is simple. We let ourselves down in the first two games and that means that our margin for error is now very, very small."

-- U.S. national team captain Michael Bradley on what is at stake in the next two World Cup 2018 qualifiers after losses to Mexico and Costa Rica left the USA in last place in the Hexagonal. (USA Today)
