U.S. defender Matt Besler in statement obtained by FOX Soccer regarding recent comments about January camp: "It's frustrating that any of my comments would be taken to imply that my commitment to the National Team is anything but absolute. Like the rest of our team, I take a tremendous amount of pride in representing our country and giving 100 percent every time I step on the field. Having a professional approach is something I take very seriously. After a long season I took a much-needed three-week break, and then began the process of preparing for the January camp as I have for the past three years. Playing for the United States is always an honor, and I appreciate the opportunity. Thanks for your continued support."
