The U.S. Midfield (Bradley, Feilhaber and Klejstan) — A Final Preview

With starting midfielder Michael Bradley suspended for today’s final, the question is which of the two midfielders used during the tournament Bob Bradley will use in his place.  The odds-on favorite is Benny Feilhaber, who also replaced Bradley in the 2007 Gold Cup Final (which Bradley missed for a late tackle in the semi-final victory over Canada).

Here are our statistics on the three.  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.
