Bocanegra's 100th Appearance

News: After captaining Fulham on Saturday, Bocanegra has now made 100 appearances for his club.

Of Note: Since joining Fulham in 2004, Bocanegra has been deployed in a variety of positions, both across the backline and even in defensive midfield. However, in the past few seasons, Carlos has held firmly to his position at center back for the Cottagers and this year has ascended to the rank of deputy captain in Brian McBride’s absence. In reaching the 100 Appearance mark in the Premier League, Bocanegra achieves a mark held by only 4 other Americans: Claudio Reyna, Brad Friedel, Kasey Keller, and Brian McBride.

Up Next: Fulham host Bolton Wanderers on Wednesday night in the 3rd Round of the Carling Cup.
