[MAKING A LIST] U.S. captain Carlos Bocanegra’s appearance in Tuesday's 3-2 win over Slovenia marked his 100th game for the USA, joining 11 other players who've hit the century mark.

The 32-year-old defender debuted for the USA in December of 2001, under Coach Bruce Arena, after his second season with MLS's Chicago Fire. The Southern Californian who starred at UCLA was MLS's 2000 Rookie of the Year.

Bocanegra moved from Chicago to English Premier League club Fulham, for which he played in 2000-2004, before stints in France with Rennes (2008-2010) and Saint-Etienne (2010-11). He moved to Scotland's Glasgow Rangers last summer.

Bocanegra, who became U.S. captain under Coach Bob Bradley in 2007 following Claudio Reyna's retirement, has scored 12 goals for the USA. A central defender and left back, he started all four U.S. games at the 2010 World Cup and played in two games at the 2006 World Cup. He's played in 26 World Cup qualifying games.
