Dynamo striker Brian Ching is hopeful of making the final 23 man roster for the United States that will go to this summer’s World Cup in South Africa.
The U.S. It will ultimately come down to his fitness and the strength of his hamstring and the ability to perform. Ching helped the U.S. qualify for the World Cup and is a true target type forward. Here is a recent interview I did with Brian:
GD: What does it mean to you personally to play in a world Cup?
Brian Ching: It would mean alot. It would be justification for the hard work that I have put in over the last four years. However, I want to be a part of winning. Not just playing there or being on the team. I want to play and make a difference.
GD: When did you first learn about the World Cup and what it was?
Brian Ching: I first learned about the World Cup watching it on tv. As you know, I was more interested in surfing. I don’t really know when I started to pay attention but I guess it was when Argentina and Germany were in the final. That’s my first memory.
GD: How much of the World Cup is about national pride?
Brian Ching: It’s the ultimate achievement in soccer to play in a World Cup in front of your entire country.
GD: What goes through your mind when the national anthem is playing?
Brian Ching: One of the most memorable moments was on the field before we played Italy in the World Cup in 2006. Hearing the national anthem sung by all the fans and us players was the proudest moment of my life. I think about our country and how hard I worked to get to that point in my life.
