The 30-year old USA international, who debuted off the bench in last weekendās 2-1 win over Toronto FC, played as full 90 minutes and was happy to go the distance despite his side losing 3-1 at Houston Dynamo.
āYouāve got to play games to get fitness. So far Iāve only played two competitive games since I was off with the national team,ā he said.
āItās good to get my first 90 minutes, and fitness is getting there. Iām still working on that sharpness, that final shot in front of goal. I was lacking that a little bit tonight. I like to think I could have put at least one of those opportunities away.
It was good to get 90 minutes. This was the first 90 minutes Iāve had in a long time. I thought we created enough chances tonight that we should have scored more goals.
āI had some good looks; I maybe should have put one away. But we created chances, so Iām not frustrated with that aspect.ā
