The U.S. Forwards — A Final Preview

Although Landon Donovan is being listed as a forward on FIFA.com, the U.S. has had three true forwards in the Confederations Cup:  Jozy Altidore, Charlie Davies, and Conor Casey.

We’re going to do this a little differently than the Goalkeepers and Defenders.  We’ll provide the category and then each forward’s stats in it.  As usual, the majority of these statistics are from fifa.com.  The table below is a copy of our own organization of the data, which was contained on at least 10 different pages.
