Eric Wynalda, veteran of the 1990, 1994, and 1998 World Cups, is one of the US's greatest ever players.  Having grown up in the soccer talent hot bed of Southern California, Eric attended and played collegiately at San Diego State University before being named to the US Men's National Team 1990 World Cup team.  It was the first time the US had qualified for the World Cup since 1950!!  Eric then moved to Europe to ply his trade with FC Saabrucken in the German Bundesliga (top league in Germany) where he was named the Bundesliga Newcomer of the Year!!

Eric was again part of the US Men's National World Cup team in 1994 and scored what served to be a crucial tieing goal for the US in the opening game against Switzerland (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MHtbb3yd9wM).  

In 1996, Eric returned to the US to take part in Major League Soccer's inaugural year with the San Jose Clash where he scored the league's first ever goal! After a brief stint in Mexico with Leon in 1999, Eric continued in the MLS with the Miami Fusion, New England Revolution and finished his professional career with the Chicago Fire.

Internationally, Eric finished as the US's all-time leading scorer with 34 goals in 107 international appearances for the US before being eclipsed by Landon Donovan.

After his playing career, Eric moved into the commentator's booth as an analyst for ESPN during the 2006 World Cup as well as during the 2007 MLS season.  He later moved to the Fox Network and continues today as one of the most recognized American soccer analysts.
