press conference announcing the hiring of Pia Sundhage
, U.S. Soccer President Sunil Gulati
explained why he believes the Swede is the right choice to get the USA back
on track. Sundhage discussed how the USA can prevail in an increasingly competitive international arena: "The team is capable of keeping possession and finding the right moment to penetrate. The
U.S. can be very successful this way, even playing against tough teams and organized teams. It's about dictating the tempo; sometimes high tempo and sometimes low tempo. You have to expect that
they want to keep the ball and to be comfortable with the ball."
