Kasey's eyes on Germany

Posted on 22 June 2004  - 12:00

Tottenham Hotspur (Spurs) Football Club is located in North London. The club is also known as Spurs. Tottenham's home ground is White Hart Lane. The club motto is Audere est Facere (To dare is to do).

Kasey Keller is targeting the 2006 World Cup Finals after kicking-off the qualifying campaign as America's number one.

Goalkeeper Kasey - ever-present for the last two seasons at Spurs - won his 69th and 70th caps as the States negotiated the first stage of their CONCACAF qualifying process, a two-legged knock-out against Grenada.

In doing so, he picked up a record 39th win on international duty for the USA.

USA now take on Jamaica, Panama and El Salvador in the group stages, the top two progress to the final group of six teams from which three will advance straight to the finals in Germany.

"That's the target," said Kasey. "I wouldn't have started this qualifying campaign unless I thought I could be around for the goal at the end of it. If that wasn't the case I would have retired from international football before now.

"It's a long qualifying process, 18 games and we've got the first two out of the way. We haven't had to go through that in the last few years as we've always been seeded ahead of that.

"I still feel good out there, even though I’m getting a bit older. I’ve got plenty of more years left in me. I got the shut-out record last year, now the record wins so with both the national team and Spurs it's been a nice year for me."
