Place of birthMichigan
NationalityAmerican
Weight66 kg
Height1.70 m
PositionMidfielder

He is the most capped player for the USA and a veteran of two previous World Cup Final campaigns. He originally had trials with FC Cologne but his performances in the 1994 World Cup Finals won him a contract at Coventry City. He failed to make a big impression and moved back to MLS after a brief spell at Vasco de Gama to play for the LA Galaxy. He has lost the pace of his early career but his experience could be an invaluable asset from the bench.
