U.S. Player Ratings
January 24th, 2010 7AM



[USA REPORT CARD] Soccer America's Ridge Mahoney rates the U.S. players after their 3-1 loss to Honduras on Saturday.

U.S. Player Ratings
Rating Player (Club) GP/G
5 Troy Perkins (D.C. United) 7/0
Rarely tested except for very sharp finishes.

3 Marvell Wynne (Toronto FC) 4/0

Attacked aggressively, but defended shakily and was completely lost on third goal.

4 Chad Marshall (Columbus Crew) 11/1

Beaten by Jerry Palacios on second goal, headed over on corner, decent effort.

3 Jimmy Conrad (Kansas City Wizards) 28/1

One jersey tug + one jersey tug + stringent referee = adios.

6 Jonathan Bornstein (Chivas USA) 27/2

Sharp on the ball, quick into the tackle, consistently solid.

3 Sacha Kljestan (Chivas USA) 22/3

Broke though once with the ball, otherwise benign.

4 Kyle Beckerman (Real Salt Lake) 11/1

Couldn't hold the middle, attacking efforts seldom clicked.

5 Benny Feilhaber (Aarhus/DEN) 31/2

Just missed on a few one-twos, often stranded without good options.

4 Robbie Rogers (Columbus Crew) 10/1

Rebounded after a shaky start, but a bit disappointing.

2 Jeff Cunningham (FC Dallas) 13/1

Sluggish and ineffective.

4 Robbie Findley (Real Salt Lake) 1/0

Brought some energy but not nearly enough touch and guile.
6 Clarence Goodson (IK Start/NOR) 9/2
Showed some confidence in his tackles and passes, headed only U.S. goal.

4 Conor Casey (Colorado Rapids) 18/2

Good work holding up the ball, touches not quite crisp enough.

5 Alejandro Bedoya (Orebro/SWE) 1/0

Skillful in various points of attack, headed a corner kick wide.

6 Brad Davis (Houston Dynamo) 4/0

Effective with the ball, hit variety of good passes, nice corner for U.S. goal.

5 Heath Pearce (FC Dallas) 29/0

Blunted a few attacks, got up the line, added some bite to the flank.

5 Dax McCarty (FC Dallas) 3/0

Controlled the middle and used the ball well in garbage time.
