Six Yard Box w/ Benny Feilhaber

Just five minutes of your time. Well…OK, maybe six. People are always asking for a few minutes of your time, and here at we’re no different. But the good thing is we can promise those six minutes will be well worth your time. In Center Circle’s new podcast feature called the “Six-Yard Box”, we’re tracking down all your favorite full and youth national team players across the globe and peppering as many questions as we can at them in a six-minute time limit. It’s a quick, entertaining and informative chat to keep you abreast of what the top U.S. soccer players are up to on – and off – the field. Oh, and if it goes over six minutes…well, that’s just some good ‘ole extra time.

Former U-20, future U-23 and current Hamburg SV midfielder Benny Feilhaber is the first player to be featured in “Six-Yard Box,” as we caught up with him at his apartment in Germany just days after his first appearance with Hamburg’s first team. We talked to Benny about what his first Bundesliga match was like, where he’s going out in Hamburg and if he’s keeping in touch with his good friend Sacha Kljestan who’s turning in a fantastic rookie season with Chivas USA.
