Stuart Holden’s Relatively Illustrious Company

I’ve updated our running tally of MNT Stats Since 2006 to include the results from the Haiti match.  In so doing, I noticed that Stuart Holden has – in his first two MNT matches – already joined a relatively impressive group of players.  Since January 1, 2007, Bob Bradley has given caps to 78 defenders, midfielders, and forwards.  Yesterday, Stuart Holden became only the 14th player to earn at least 5 points for the MNT during the Bradley era.

Tied at 5 points with Holden are (with minutes played in parentheses):  Steve Cherundolo (1128), Benny Feilhaber (1202), and Frankie Hejduk (837).  No American has earned more points in fewer total minutes than Holden; the only player close is Freddy Adu with 6 points in 709 minutes.
