"While I am disappointed that I did not win, I want to be clear - soccer did not lose today. This is an important moment for the game in the U.S., and now is the time for everyone in the soccer community to come together to address our challenges, grow the game, and expand equality, opportunity, and diversity from top to bottom. I am committed to working with Carlos and lending my experience, energy, and expertise to the cause."
