United States veteran Tim Ream says age no concern - ESPN
Fulham and United States defender Tim Ream said he's "not really thinking about age" as he's embarks on his 16th season in professional soccer.
Ream, 35, is in his hometown of St. Louis preparing for the U.S. team's friendly match against Uzbekistan on Sept. 9, which will be followed by a second friendly against Oman in St. Paul, Minnesota, four days later.

Despite excelling for the U.S. at the 2022 World Cup, it wouldn't have been a surprise to see the U.S. turn to other, younger defenders, but Ream is determined to continue to be a contributor for his country.
"I'm just kind of playing and living in the moment, just enjoying doing what I'm doing. I'm not, I'm not really thinking about age," Ream told reporters on a conference call Monday. "I set goals for myself every season. I set longer term goals to try to get to another World Cup, try to be able to play in a Copa America next summer.
