3. Michael Bradley —

The engineer of the U.S. midfield over the last eight years, Bradley has emerged from being known as “the coach’s son” to one of the best overall soccer players in the nation’s history.  Has made 86 appearances with 12 goals in international play, including a 2-goal effort in what some say was the single-best one-game performance in U.S. history as the Americans beat Mexico 2-0 to help them qualify for the 2010 World Cup.  Mixes a great work rate with the ability to score and deliver precise passes for goal scoring chances.
