In Soccer America 19 years ago: 'Iron Man' Gregg Berhalter

In 2000, our analysis of the USA's 2002 World Cup qualifying quest got Gregg Berhalter on the cover after he started four straight games on the backline for Coach Bruce Arena's team.

Berhalter led the USA in minutes played in the five-game semifinal round of Concacaf qualifying, ahead of Tony Sanneh, Chris Armas and Earnie Stewart. The USA went on to reach the quarterfinals of the 2002 World Cup in South Korea. Berhalter, now the USA's head coach, and Stewart, the team's general manager, both played in the 2-0 round-of-16 win over Mexico.

    Berhalter is working hard to be an exception to the conventional wisdom that former backs don't make the best managers. I am favorably impressed so far.

    I hope his being a part of the 2002 cycle is a foreshadowing of success this cycle.
