When I found out I was starting, that was incredible! I was trying to be cool in the meeting, but inside I was totally not. Once again, highly likely that I did not look cool at all.
Walking out with the starters in front of a huge crowd was just mind-blowing. You hear the national anthem all the time at so many sporting events, but when you do it for the National Team, and you look at the flag and have your hand not only over your heart, but also over the U.S. Soccer crest, it’s something I can’t explain. It makes me so proud to represent my country and to try to do it with honor. It was a very humbling experience to say the least.
