"I think Freddy is starting to realize not only his potential, but starting to see the things that we've been talking about for the last three or four years. ... I did understand from the
beginning that for a young man like Freddy at that time it was a little difficult for him to understand the bigger picture. I think he's started to believe not only what I've been saying; he's
started to believe in his ability to change the game."
-- U.S. U-23 coach Peter Nowak
on Freddy Adu
, who scored twice in the USA's 3-0 win over Canada that qualifed the USA
for the 2008 Olympic Games. Nowak was Adu's coach at D.C. United during Adu's first three seasons of pro ball.
