JOHANNESBURG, South Africa - Robbie Findley sounded quiet, slightly unsure, as he leaned into the microphone and answered only the questions directly asked of him, and nothing more. Findley's reserve was understandable. He was sitting next to World Cup veterans: goalkeeper Tim Howard and defender Steve Cherundolo. In such company, deference was easy. But given the possible shift in the U.S. team's attacking scheme - presumed starting forward Jozy Altidore sprained his right ankle during Thursday's training - Findley's speedy, attacking game could move him from the bench to the starting lineup.

TODAY CONTINUES an interesting journey for Olaniyi Adewole and his family when the 6-3, 220-pound Upper Darby High linebacker puts pen to paper and signs his national letter of intent to play for Temple. It's a trek that began in Akure, Nigeria, passed through Tennessee, and wound up in Drexel Hill. His family didn't even know what football was when they came here in 1981. Now the game is providing the youngest of the three Adewole boys with the opportunity of a better future. The 3-year Royals' starting middle linebacker was an all-Central League selection, though he's projected to play outside linebacker, where he can use his 4.4-second speed, at Temple.

The 22-year-old accused killer of a 77-year-old Olney man is holed up in South Korea and cannot be extradited because the United States doesn't have an extradition treaty with Korea. David "Solid" Nam, who was born and raised in this country, fled to Korea after jumping bail of $1 million last year. At the time, Nam was living in North Wales, Montgomery County, and was on probation for resisting arrest. Authorities are still trying to collect bail money from Nam's father, who pledged $100,000 to win his son's freedom.

Mexico has been losing ground to the United States for 150 years, but no longer. Mexico has come up with a plan - if not to regain the 1 million square miles of land it lost in the Mexican American War, at least to recapture some of its former citizens and their American-born children. Under a new Mexican law that went into effect last month, naturalized U.S. citizens who were born in Mexico can now apply to retain Mexican nationality. As many as 7 million naturalized Americans could take advantage of the law, and so could their U.S.-born children, perhaps doubling the number eligible to hold dual U.S. and Mexican nationality.

Center is fulfilling its promise to Phila. region It's nice to see Convention Center critic Gray Smith sticking to his guns, even though they are loaded with blanks. Each of his most recent shots at the center (Letters, Dec. 19) is wide of the mark. Contrary to his assertions, the cost of the Convention Center is not increasing. The City Council action he refers to merely authorizes the expenditure of interest earned on money borrowed long ago for the restoration of the historic Reading Terminal Headhouse, which will be the Market Street entrance to the center.

The advent of a new law that enables Mexicans to maintain their birth nationality when they acquire U.S. citizenship will lessen the cultural distances between the people of Mexico and the United States. The law is drawing criticism from those who say that dual citizenship also should allow voting in Mexican elections and those who see it as encouraging an "invasion. " What both of these viewpoints miss - by a wide margin - is the genuine sentiment among Mexican immigrants in the United States of appreciation and loyalty for both countries.
