Tony Meola

Club: Kansas City
Position: Goalkeeper

His best days are behind him, but then so is a wealth of experience.

Was the USA's first-choice at Italia 90 and USA 94 and knows exactly what is required of him should he be called upon in a crisis.

Looked like losing out on a place in the finals to Metrostars shot-stopper Tim Howard.

But manager Bruce Arena instead opted for an older head in the shape of 33-year-old Meola.
