they get the breakthrough last. that couldn't stop them. his fourth goal does the print. what was it? roger told me to wear it. you have your name on there? i had no idea you were a galaxy fan. i had no idea i was a houston dynamo fan, but i am and i love it. roger, this is a sherbetorange, but you sent me the right jersey. i love the dutch when it comes to soccer. i love brilliant orange and this certainly is. what's going on? we normally have to slum it with me. we have permission and your excellency. it is an honor to have you. we have the
mls cup and the clash of america's two finest teams that kickoff between the galaxy in houston and it has been an amazing season. amazing television. you have expansion under way and tv ratings on there in the course of attendance surpassing the nba and nhl. you said that soccer in this league will be among the elite leagues by 2022. that's a tall order. it starts with building this in our country. people like you that love the game and people who watch the
mls cup on espn and following two great teams with great players like landon donovan and david beckham that are coming into the league internationally or coming in from the youth ranks. all trying to get people to care about this beautiful sport. we know all about l.a. let's talk about houston. what's special about houston? that's for me. this is a championship game building a stadium in downtown houston next to your great players. brian has played for the national team many years and a coach that is one of the rugged, rugged guys that every year takes their team to the top. they didn't make the playoffs this year and it's in the championship game this year. a great matchup for us. somewhat interested in the premier league. she is obsessed with soccer. i am going with houston. i'm very excited. if the l.a. galaxy and houston were to play, what standard that they would watch? would they be the aa or the aaa? it's probably in the middle or the bottom, but i think it's up there with the big guys. perhaps not at the manchester united and chelsea level, but it's taking people like you and turning you into fans, i hope. no doubt either one of the teams would chew them up and spit them out for breakfast. if you were sitting at this table face-to-face, you wouldn't speak. liverpool next time may not stop. there is a reason you are in d.c. exactly. so obviously we are watching this and i can't wait to watch the game. it will be great. let me ask you about this weekend. the united states was able to do something for france and that is set the french program on the right track. a big win, 1-0. it was. was at the sixth game in charge and promised the more attacking and more aggressive style of play. it's only yielded two goals. paris in front of 70,000 french fans. the american game plan resembled foster's. they rescinded and retreated into a shell. it was a 1-0 score line and truly a battering. tim howard was absolutely remarkable and goal. in the 72nd minute, the little french dizzying one to strike out lacerated the american defense and stopped the ball. six games in and two goals. they chose and hopefully that will be more than the goals of flight. >> all right, thank you so much. go dynamo. go galaxy.
