Was the (World Cup qualifying) game in '89? Yes. But in '89, the 30 of us and a few thousand knew. This is different. Everyone knows what’s going on. ... I don't think we’re going to convert the American population overnight, but anybody that watched today's game and can't get excited about it, we're not gonna win them over, I accept that.
