Mexico draw was unbelievable team effort from USA - Klinsmann

Juergen Klinsmann was absolutely thrilled with his USA players following their 0-0 draw with Mexico on Tuesday night.

The US kept a clean sheet against a dangerous Mexico outfit at the Azteca Stadium in the third fixture of the hexagonal stage of 2014 World Cup qualifying and their German boss was delighted with their performance.

"We came here and we wanted to give it a shot to win this game but obviously we are very pleased with this result," said Klinsmann.

"Mexico gave everything they had, put us in a lot of pressure and I think the way our team was organized, connected and committed it was an unbelievable team effort and they deserve a huge compliment.

"There have been many challenges over the last ten days in terms of injuries, in terms of players not available, after the Costa Rica game (1-0 win on Friday) people were completely exhausted after playing in the snow and we had another two players out, Matt Besler stepped in, Mo (Edu) stepped in no problem. This group is ready for those challenges and they deserve a huge compliment."
