US v. Brazil — Cumulative Player Ratings

As always, this post sets out the cumulative player ratings for the U.S. team.  It is based on the ratings of three sources:  ESPN, Goal.com, and Soccer365.com.  Per our policy, we do not identify which source gave which score.  Instead, we tell you the average and their scores from low to high.  We also provide the writers’ averages for the entire team (so you can get a sense of their overall impression and scoring pattern).

In addition, we now have a link to each player’s overall ratings from the entire Confederations Cup 2009.

Position Player Composite      
Goalkeeper Tim Howard 8.7 8.0 9.0 9.0
Defender Jonathan Spector 5.8 5.0 6.0 6.5
Defender Oguchi Onyewu 6.8 6.0 6.0 8.5
Defender Jay DeMerit 6.5 6.0 6.0 7.5
Defender Carlos Bocanegra 5.2 4.0 5.5 6.0
Defender Jonathan Bornstein 4.8 4.0 4.5 6.0
Midfielder Landon Donovan 7.5 6.5 7.5 8.5
Midfielder Clint Dempsey 6.2 5.5 6.0 7.0
Midfielder Benny Feilhaber 6.3 6.0 6.5 6.5
Midfielder Ricardo Clark 6.2 6.0 6.0 6.5
Midfielder Sacha Kljestan 5.0 4.0 5.0 6.0
Forward Jozy Altidore 5.3 4.5 5.5 6.0
Forward Charlie Davies 6.8 6.0 7.0 7.5

The average ranking for the Final was 6.2.  ESPN’s average ranking was 5.5.  Goal.com’s average ranking was 6.2 and Greg Seltzer (Soccer365) had an average ranking of 7.0.

Oddly, the player the experts disagreed the most about was Gooch, who had a difference of 2.5 between his low and high scores.  Feilhaber and Clark had the smallest amount of disagreement (only a half point).
