What They're Saying: John Herdman

“This is what we’ve dreamed of. It’s absolutely what we’ve dreamed of to get people excited. And people who have always had to wear an Italian shirt or a Serbian shirt or a Greek shirt, they can put them down. That’s what we want them to do, and pull on their Canadian jersey and now be proud of us.”

-- Canada national team coach John Herdman, after his team's 2-0 win over the USA put it on the verge of qualifying for the World Cup for the first time since 1986. (New York Times)
