Bruce Arena quotes

I think Panama thought there was a bull's-eye on his back, and they went after him from minute 1 all the way through. He has to learn that, that if the referee is not going protect him he's got to deal with it, and I think he did well.feedback

We made a lot of progress and somehow managed to get through an unusual amount of injuries.feedback

We are not overconfident. We know we're playing against a very good opponent, and realize every time you play a World Cup qualifying game on the road in qualifying it will be a very difficult match.feedback

What do I make of (Dempsey's) performance? I think it was exceptional, damn good.feedback

And DaMarcus you know you can always put in at any time. He's experienced, he's got the right attitude, he understands the group. If it comes to crunch time, we can always put DaMarcus on the field.feedback

I think we're going to play him where he plays for his club team. It only makes sense to me. He's played a number of games for Gladbach on the left side of midfield, and I think that's his natural position where he feels most comfortable and that's where we're going to position him. I think Bobby Wood is in great form right now, and you have to think he's going to be there. Jozy and Jordan give us other options as well, and Clint – depending on how we align ourselves – can be a second forward or he can play underneath the striker in the midfield as well. I think we have good options up top.feedback

That's a position that I think the national team has been lacking in. Fabian Johnson has been placed in that role over the last couple of years, and I believe he's best suited in the midfield. We have a young, talented left back in Jorge Villafana who showed very well in January, and we've watched him in some Mexican cup matches. He's playing well.feedback

Tim's track record demonstrates the fact that, if healthy, you think he needs to be in the squad. We'll see in the week in training in San Jose. If he's in good form, he's feeling right, there's no reason to believe he's not going to play.feedback

He's a player I believe in one of these two matches can step on the field in the last 15-20 minutes and help us get a goal. There's not a game he doesn't think he can't score a goal in, or set up a goal. We need that kind of confidence and leadership inside our team. So Clint's going to be with us.feedback

I think it's a real simple approach: win the game. We're going to do whatever we need to do to win. It's important to get three points in that game because obviously you know where we stand in the Hex right now. We'll have our players ready to go. We've got to go out, be aggressive and get some goals.feedback

I'm very supportive of that policy. I think players should stand for the national anthem. I think representing your country is one of the greatest honors a player or coach can have. That would be my expectations of the players as well.feedback

I'm aware of the fact that [Howard] trained pretty hard yesterday. So I think when you come back from those kind of injuries, you always have some kind of minor little setback. You get a strain or a little bit of fatigue ... I think that's normal.feedback

We'd like to have them all. But the reality of the situation is that's not likely.feedback

[Cameron] is a little sore, naturally. It was his first game in a long time, so we'll just follow him through the week.feedback

I think it's great that [Dempsey] is back and playing again. I think we need to be smart and evaluate where he's at over the next two weekends. Again, I think in his case, we need to be very cautious.feedback

Ghana is certainly a team that brings different challenges, and it's the type of competition we need as we continue to develop our program. Winning the Gold Cup is one of our priorities in 2017, so this is an important opportunity. We've always had great support in Hartford, and look forward to more of the same this summer.feedback

We're going to have a lot of pressure on us. We're not only expected to qualify for the World Cup, we're also expected to be successful in group play and to get into the round of 16 and then hopefully the quarterfinals.feedback

Our fan base is way ahead of what it was when I started in '98 and ended in 2006. And now, with the obvious emergence of social media, it's 24 hours a day. So we're going to have a lot of pressure on us, and that's all part of it. That's what we sign up for. So we look forward to the challenge.feedback

There's a lot of players entering their prime, which in our sport is about 28, 29 years old. We're not too old and we're not too young. So there shouldn't be any excuses. We have enough experience and enough quality to be successful in qualifying.feedback

They've got to be convinced the way we're going to play is the right way, and they've got to be convinced to play for each other. The bottom line is we have to be a better team than we've been in the first two games of this competition. So the concept of team and putting that ahead of everything else is going to be critical.feedback

I think you'll see changes – I think changes everywhere, not radical, but our mentality will be different, our approach will be different and, hopefully, the results will be different.feedback

The American player is generally a good player. What we lack is the real elite player that some of the other countries have. But we have a good, solid base of players, and I'm confident they can play against anyone in the world.feedback
