  • What They're Saying

    "Danny Williams is in a similar situation to Fabian Johnson during the last camp. We really want to see him with this group. He has tremendous potential. The coach at Hoffenheim is full of compliments and admiration for Danny, and I really want him to come in and get a first feeling for this group of players on the U.S. team. He's a player with a huge upside in the next couple of years. If it's possible to integrate those elements into a camp then we will continue to do that. Talking to his coach at Hoffenheim confirms he's ready for this step."
