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.
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 haven't done anything yet, but I want to be the best in the world.
I do stuff that I don't even know I can do sometimes.
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'm not worried. My time will come.
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.
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.
Sometimes I even amaze myself, and sometimes I do things that make me want to punch myself in the face.
I've got a long way to go. I'm not in a hurry.
I want to be good at what I do, obviously, and to do that I need to keep my head straight.
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'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.

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 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.
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.
This is unbelievable to me. I always wanted to be famous, be the best, but I didn't think it would be like this.
It's awesome where I am right now. It's a lot of people's dream. I'm going to take full advantage of it.
My image is very important to me. I want to bring a good face to my family. That's the way I've been raised.
My mom was always the supplier of soccer balls, and so people were always knocking on my door, and trying to get me out so we could play.
When you play soccer, most of the time you got to get the ball moving, but once you get into that attacking third you gotta be creative, you gotta let your talent take over.
You can teach all the other stuff, you know. You can teach shooting the ball, you can teach having a good touch... passing and whatnot, but when you get out there on the field, it's just a mindset you need to go into the game with.
