After the 3-2 victory against Iceland on Sunday, two U.S. Men’s National Team players moved higher up the standings on the all-time records list. Toronto FC teammates Jozy Altidore and Michael Bradley each put marks on the scoresheet that draw them closer to the top spot for goals and assists.
Altidore scored the first equalizer against Iceland – coincidentally assisted by Bradley - increasing his career tally to 32 career goals and bringing him just two goals behind Eric Wynalda for third on the scoring list. It took Wynalda 104 appearances to post 34 goals, while yesterday marked Altidore’s 90th cap with the MNT.
Bradley delivered two assists to push his career total to 20, passing three-time World Cup veteran Claudio Reyna to gain sole possession of third place. He’s now just two shy of tying Cobi Jones for second. Jones – the USA’s all-time leader in appearances with 164 total – reached 22 assists in his 147th game for the senior team, with Bradley hot on his tail after collecting 110 caps.
