Former Terps Return for Match vs. Germany

June 2, 2013

WASHINGTON, D.C. - Three former Terps returned to the DMV Sunday as the U.S. Men's National Team celebrated 100 years of soccer with a 4-3 victory against Germany at RFK Stadium.

Omar Gonzalez and Graham Zusi - both key members of Maryland's 2008 national championship squad - earned starts from head coach Jurgen Klinsman. Clarence Goodson was also at Sunday's match.

The contest marked the 22nd time the U.S. MNT has played at RFK, more than any other venue in the world. With the win, the U.S. improved its record at the stadium to 14-3-5.

Jozy Altidore kicked off the historic day in the 13th minute with a fantastic volley off a cross from Zusi and Clint Dempsey put the game away with two strikes in the second half.

The U.S. will play three World Cup qualifiers next, starting with a match against Jamaica in Kingston on June 7. The U.S. will then face Panama in Seattle on June 11 and Honduras in Sandy, Utah, on June 18.
