USA World Cup Soccer Team

The 2006 World Cup of Soccer is about to kick off in Germany. Kidzworld checks out some of the top players to watch from the US National Team.

Landon Donovan

US Soccer Team - Landon Donovan

Landon Donovan is a veteran of the US soccer team, having played in the 2002 World Cup. The forward for the LA Galaxy of Major League Soccer scored six goals and led the team in points in 2006 World Cup qualifying games. LanDo's soft touch around the net will be essential if the USA is to advance to the knockout round in Germany.

US Soccer Team - Oguchi Onyewu

Oguchi Onyewu At six feet, four inches tall, Oguchi Onyewu is one of the biggest players in US soccer history and could be one of the breakout players of the 2006 World Cup. Onyewu will have to be a monster on the US defence and will be relied on to shut down talented forwards from Italy and the Czech Republic, the USA's toughest opponents in the opening round.

US Soccer Team - Clint Dempsey

Clint Dempsey Midfielder, Clint Dempsey, is one of the USA's most creative and exciting players. The star of the New England Revolution is a quick and fearless dribbler, whose energy will be vital if the USA is to knock off the Czechs or the Italians in the World Cup's opening round. A big goal that helps the USA reach the knockout round could make Dempsey a household name.

US Soccer Team - Brian McBride

Brian McBride McBride is one of the oldest members of the USA's soccer team, who played in both the 1998 and 2002 World Cups. The veteran forward is known for his ability to hold off defenders and his strong prowess in the air. A high-flying header or two from McBride should send the USA flying deep into the playoff rounds in Germany.

US Soccer Team - Kasey Keller
Kasey KellerKasey Keller is expected to be the USA's starting goalkeeper at the 2006 World Cup. He has quick reflexes, good positioning and is considered one of the best goalies in the world. Keller has won more games for the United States than any other goalie, but has yet to win a game at the World Cup. That stat will need to change in order for the USA is to make some noise in 2006.
