After training this morning, we asked Sporting Kansas City defender Matt Besler what it felt like to put the U.S. gear on for the first time.
"It was amazing," said Besler. "You want to handle yourself like you've been here before, and the reality is that you have butterflies in your stomach the first time you put on the crest. I was just excited to get out on the field and start playing. Once you're out there, you settle in and it just becomes about the soccer. Everybody's been great."
Welcome aboard, Matt.
