What They're Saying

“We all felt every little piece of it. It shows you how brutal football can be for one side that is almost there, and then the other side is back in. But, at the end of the day I mentioned it before, we were here to give everything we have. We said that we are here to win and get three points. Obviously, nobody expected we were going to turn things around in the last one minute, but you have to play it all the way to the end and we did that. Our players gave everything they had, kept pushing and were rewarded. Obviously, you feel for the people, you feel for the entire country, you feel for [Panama head coach Julio] Dely Valdes, who I admire a lot, but this is football, it’s not over until it’s over.”

-- Jurgen Klinsmann after the USA rallied in stoppage time to tie and then beat Panama, 3-2, and end the Canaleros' dream of qualifying for the World Cup for the first time. (USSoccer.com)
