Only Total Football Geeks Will Be Able To Name Every American To Play in The Premier League

Brad Friedel was one of the most successful Americans to play in the Premier League

Ask any football fan to name an American who played in the Premier League and the chances are the first suggestion will be a goalkeeper.

Brad Friedel, Tim Howard and Casey Keller clocked up hundreds of appearances between them and they were fine ambassadors for their country during their stay in the UK.

But there are plenty of others who failed to hit the heights and we'd be amazed if you can guess all 43 of them without the use of Google. We've just mentioned three so you're off to a flying start. 

England play the United States at Wembley on Thursday, a game which has caused a bit of stir given that Wayne Rooney has been recalled to the squad. Rooney is enjoying life in the MLS and the move looks to have given him a new lease of life. Rooney is expected to given a guard of honour with his family by the touchline on the occasion of his 120th and final cap so it's sure to be an emotional occasion. 

Some of the current England squad have been speaking about how they looked up to Rooney when they were growing up and the influence he had on their careers.

Callum Wilson and Lewis Dunk are expected to make their England debuts and exciting Borussia Dortmund forward Jadon Sancho is set to make his first start for Gareth Southgate's side. Goalkeeper Alex McCarthy is believed to be in line for a debut as is Brighton defender Lewis Dunk.
