"Those guys are my boys. They played so hard tonight and you can't even express your feelings in the right way right now. For me, they won a gold medal in this game tonight. Of course, in the soccer
world we still have to move on. There are a lot of things we can improve at the international level, but we're going in the right direction. For those boys to play like that, it was quite a journey.
The last five minutes with 50,000 people chanting 'U-S-A' was quite a feeling. ... I'll cherish this moment forever."
-- U.S. men's coach Peter Nowak
after his team was eliminated from
the Olympic tournament with a 2-1 loss to Nigeria.
