From ussoccer.com's post Costa Rica quotes: said Keller...."You are going to win a lot of games if you keep it that tight in the back. We've got a good foundation to build on. Jimmy Conrad has stepped in and done a great job and the veterans like Tony Sanneh and Eddie Pope have been solid as well." I live in a market where I couldn't watch the games. So I have no information to go on and I am genuinely curious. The group-think on these boards has been extremely tough on Sanneh. It has been almost as hard on Arena for putting him on the field once…let alone a second time during this tournament. That said, was Keller being polite? Was he being sarcastic? If he was off the record do you think he would have said the same thing? If he thought Sanneh played poorly, why mention his name at all? Why not just say the defense did a good job? Why mention Sanneh by name? One guess I have is that he was simply being modest and not taking all of the credit for his two shutouts. Without knowing more about his personality it is really hard to say. But, if he was being sincere how can we reconcile his comments with the flood of anti-Sanneh posts?
