DaMarcus Beasley was in Eindhoven and not at home in the USA to celebrate Thanksgiving Day in Eindhoven. The American international PSV winger, who never gives up when on the pitch, is in shape, regularly nets goals and is the crowd’s darling. He kindly answered some questions, put to him by PSV Media.Three games in seven days, that’s surely a demanding schedule."It might even be too demanding, but that’s part of the deal when you play Champions League football. We must take each game seriously and pep ourselves up for yet another fixture. I don’t’ mind at all, for times flies when you play so many games. We are football players and so we like to play a game of football!"You were not called up for the latest World Cup qualifying game. How did you feel about that?"I thought it was a wise decision of our coach Bruce Arena not to call me up. Obviously I love to be at home in America once in a while, but PSV pay me a good salary, so actually I should be in Eindhoven. And the long flights take their toll. Now I had one week to take training sessions with my team mates and I liked that a lot."You have been in Eindhoven for almost six months. What are your first impressions?"Oh, it’s quite all right! I live in town and my apartment will have been decorated after the mid-winter break. I go out with friends every now and then. My favourite place to have a meal is a steak restaurant in the Dommelstraat; I often go there. Eindhoven is not such a big town, but I like it here. The people are nice and polite." You are in great shape and you have scored goals."Whenever I am on the pitch, whether it is for the full 90 minutes or just twenty minutes, I always want to seize the opportunity. I always go for it. We do fine as a team and although the pressure is on us, we can cope with that and we always know we are strong enough to face any opponent. When we play at home, we want to show our fans what we are capable of. And tonight is no exception. Whether we show our skills at the European stage or in the domestic league, every game is important for PSV."Do you have any predictions for tonight’s game?"I have said it before: we always know we are strong enough to face any opponent. We are now in a crucial phase of the current campaign, in which a lot is at stake. So we must do our utmost to win this game as well and entertain the home crowd."
