I have seen games on Xbox 360 and HD TV and I'm amazed at how realistic the players look.
We're a crazy country about sports, but for the longest time, only followed our own sports.
What I've noticed in this game is how EA has even duplicated my moves and my style of play perfectly. It is really incredible and a lot of fun to play.
It is an honor to be on the cover of this game because the World Cup is such a big thing around the world. My kids are really quite impressed so that's fun.
EA SPORTS has a strong partnership with adidas and through this relationship they approached adidas about using some of their top players from around the world.
I think we have our sports within our own culture that are huge with baseball, football, basketball, and hockey. Those are the sports in America that we grow up with and soccer isn't really there yet.
Sure we have skilled players, but the biggest thing might just be that we are so well conditioned and how we can play for 90 minutes at a high tempo which is needed in soccer at an international level.
The more people who come from abroad who played soccer and are brought up playing it and watching it, then come over to America and bring what they know and what they play, that's how the sport will grow.
I was on the sideline with a knee injury and when I came back, I wanted to play at the best level I could. And that's the case for a lot of players, they want the chance to play against the best competition.
When I see myself in the videogame it's amazing how realistic I look. This is the most authentic and realistic soccer game I have ever seen. It is like I'm looking in a mirror. The attention to detail is incredible.
