  • What They're Saying

    "I wanted to bring him into camp and see for myself why he was struggling. He had to get his fitness up to the level of the other players, so every day we pushed it a little more and a little more. I knew that when he's on the field, he is a very technically gifted player. He can play one touch football. We needed to find a way in the second half to move the ball quicker, to get the ball in the box and be a little more aggressive. He gives us more speed with his distribution and we are very happy it worked out for him this way."

    -- Jurgen Klinsmann on bringing midfielder Ricardo Clark into the U.S. national team from German second division club Eintracht Frankfurt, where he has not been playing for the first team. Clark came off the bench to score the winning goal against Venezuela. (ussoccer.com)
