Jeff Agoos

Date of birth02 May 1968
Place of birthGeneva, Switzerland
NationalityAmerican
Weight80 kg
Height1.78 m
PositionDefender

Despite being the oldest member of the USA squad and one of his nation's most capped players, Jeff Agoos hadn't played a game in the World Cup finals before 2002.

He earned an odd statistic on his finals debut as, after Portugal's Jorge Costa had 'scored' in his own net, Jeff also 'scored' an own goal - the first occasion in the history of the World Cup finals that two own goals had occured in one game.

He has spent most of his career in the MLS but did spend one season with SV Wehen in the German third division in 1994-95.

He is an excellent central defender with excellent aerial ability and man marking skills.

His lack of pace is compensated for by his excellent ability to read a game and his uncanny positional sense. He is very dangerous from set pieces that he takes.
