LA Galaxy defender Omar Gonzalez feels an impressive MLS Cup final can strengthen his US claims.

Gonzalez is yet to earn a call-up from US coach Jurgen Klinsmann.

"This game is the final.," Gonzalez told reporters at training on Thursday. "It's where you want to be performing at the top level and I think it'll definitely hold some water if I do really well. But I'm not worrying about that. I'm worried about the team and worried about winning."
