  • USA-ENGLAND: Reaction from U.S. locker room
    BRUCE ARENA, U.S. Coach''I thought it was a good game. I was pleased with our team's effort for the second half. Not that it was a bad effort in the first half, but I think the English team did an outstanding job for 45 minutes in the first half with their concentration and their ability to hang in on every play and make a difference. Their two goals they scored were opportunistic and intelligent plays. I told our guys at the end of the game that players like Alan Smith and Joe Cole, you appreciate them a lot more ...

  • WINNERS & LOSERS: The amazing comeback; Galaxy falters at home
    Winners: LIVERPOOL and AC Milan served up the highest-scoring final in Europe's premier club competition since Benfica's 5-3 triumph over Real Madrid in 1962.
