There's a nice piece in The Olympians about his retirement. It includes his decision to come to UP and his epic game against Brasil in the Gold Cup.

Keller started his run with the U.S. national team in 1990 and was part of the 1990, ’98, 2002 and ’06 World Cup teams. His most memorable performance may have come in the 1998 Gold Cup when he made 10 saves in preserving a 1-0 win over Brazil. Brazilian striker Romario called it “the best performance by a goalkeeper that I have seen.” U.S. coach Steve Sampson called it “the single greatest performance by a goalkeeper in U.S. soccer history.”

I remember that game...

Romario's handshake was cool. My favorite save was the one hander at the end.

No doubt Bigs showed him that.
