Keeper Kasey could have been forgiven for fearing the worst when his international team-mate Brian McBride broke clear to give Everton the lead after ten minutes.
Any fears he might have harboured about the capacity of the team to react were eased four minutes later and the boys did not lose the lead again.
"It was a strange game, to say the least," reflected Kasey. "There were such funny moments at both ends. Moments when you thought 'what are we doing there?' and others where you went 'wow, that is tremendous'.
"In the end it worked out right for us - we got the win. I was talking to Stephen Carr in the locker room though, and we know we got away with something. You can't expect to win too many games 4-3, but the key is that pretty good character was shown by everybody throughout.
"We went a goal down early through kind of a communication problem and it was too open there. To come back 2-1, they equalise and you think 'okay, is that it? Are we going to chuck it in?
"Not at all, we come back, 3-2, then 3-3, then a winner and it was fantastic spirit involved to be able to do that."
Kasey Keller described the 4-3 victory over Everton as a 'strange game' - one he says the team showed great spirit to win.
