USA national team boss Bob Bradley is looking for further improvement from midfielder DaMarcus Beasley.
Bradley says there has been a concerted effort from the former Rangers man to work harder in training and although the boss has been happy so far, he wants to see more from the 28-year old.
"We see a renewed commitment from DaMarcus,'' said Bradley. "The most important thing - and I'll be honest, we're still pushing for more of this - is the willingness to run and put defenders on their heels, with and without the ball.
"When DaMarcus is active and running hard and a threat to get behind people and at the right moments trying to go behind defenders this is something that helps our team. We've seen signs that that part coming around. We're hoping as he works hard and pushes through the next stretch his confidence will keep going up and up and that'll help this team.''
