Houston Dynamo winger Brad Davis was absolutely thrilled to make his first competitive international appearance on Tuesday.
The 31-year old came on for the final 20 minutes of the USA's 0-0 draw with Mexico at the Azteca Stadium in World Cup qualifying and admitted it was a great honour to represent his nation in such a vital fixture.
"Since January, I hadn't had a chance to play any minutes," Davis said of his call-up to the national team.
"To be put on at Azteca in a game like that and with importance like that, it was great to know that [head coach Jurgen Klinsmann] had the faith in me to put me on the field and to go out and help the boys get a result."
He added: "It was an unbelievable experience. It was a complete honor for me personally. Stepping on the field in front of 110,000 people that aren't your biggest fans. All in all, it was great to be there, a wonderful experience and a great result for the team."
