A native of Longview, Texas, who plays for Pachuca in the Mexican league, the kid known as El Gringo has struggled to adapt to the faster pace of the U.S. game. But with his East Texas flair and poise on the ball, he could be a huge asset if the U.S. needs to push forward and create scoring chances.
The Brazilian-born Feilhaber scored one of the most memorable U.S. goals ever—a majestic 22-yard volley to beat Mexico and win the 2007 Gold Cup—but hasn't hit the net for the U.S. since. Having found regular playing time in Denmark, he made his way back into the national team in '09 and provides a skillful touch off the bench.
