Eddie Johnson says it was a great feeling to finally hit the back of the net for the USA against arch rivals Mexico.
“It’s funny because (Sounder teammate) Clint (Dempsey) and I both talked about how we both haven’t scored against Mexico, whether it was a friendly or a World Cup qualifier.
“We were roommates (on this trip), so that was one of our motivations — to get that ***** off our back. It was a good game. It was everything it was built up to be.”
He added: “But most important, it was good to qualify for the World Cup and get that off our backs, so we can relax now.”
