All I can say is, hey, if you have fun doing what you do, if you have fun playing soccer, the creativity is just going to come as time goes on.
A lot of people have been hyped up to be great but just disappeared. I promised myself I wouldn't be one of them.
I think everything happens for a reason and all the things that happened to me - good, bad - I'm glad they did. It's made me ready for life, for adulthood.
You can't do anything to help your team win when you don't play.
I do stuff that I don't even know I can do sometimes.
I want to be good at what I do, obviously, and to do that I need to keep my head straight.
I've got a long way to go. I'm not in a hurry.
Sometimes I even amaze myself, and sometimes I do things that make me want to punch myself in the face.
That's the dream. Being on the U.S. National team and winning the World Cup. I'll take the win anyway I can get it.
I'm not worried. My time will come.
Sometimes I feel like my childhood has been taken away from me just a tiny bit. But if you want to achieve your goals, you have to sacrifice some things.
I haven't done anything yet, but I want to be the best in the world.
I would love to play for Real Madrid. And I want to win a World Cup for the U.S. so bad. When the women won it, everybody went crazy. I would love to be part of something like that.
I need more time to develop as a player and as a person.
It helps to have someone in the same boat as you... There's a lot of pressure, so it helps to have someone who's also young and famous and has a lot of pressure to succeed.
I feel the pressure but I embrace it. Whatever I have to do to make the sport catch on to other people, I'll do it.
I'm just trying to do whatever is asked of me. I've been thrown into many different positions. Sometimes I'm on the left. Sometimes I'm in the middle. Sometimes I'm up top. So you always have to be prepared. I'm learning a lot so hopefully I can keep getting better and better.
A lot of players in Europe aren't as tall as the other guys, so they have to be stocky to physically compete.
I'm very young. This gives me a perfect opportunity to play for a good team and be close to home, to grow as a player.
(on signing for D.C. United)
If they asked me, I would have to say no. I made up my mind to play for the United States some day and I'm sticking to it.
(on playing for Ghana)
There are some casual fans who think you're going to dominate a game, be magic, score 10 goals. Even if you dominate a game, you'll only score two or three goals.
Once your name gets out, people just want to crack you.
When I'm out on the field, I'm not scared of anyone.
My only real job is to play well and do my job on the field. If I do that, all the other stuff will take care of itself.
I need to have the ball at my feet. That's when I know anything is possible.
