TT - Game Day

If you took our advice and read the pre-game notes this morning, you would have seen this tidbit:

Three players are in the squad from the Colorado Rapids. In addition to team captain Mastroeni, Conor Casey and Cory Gibbs return to the U.S. fold. Casey looks to get his first international action since 2005, while Gibbs comes back after a knee injury knocked him off the 2006 FIFA World Cup roster.

Got us thinking about which player has had the longest interval between national team appearances. One player in the running may very well be starting tonight! Anyway, you know the drill. Starting the stopwatch ... now.

John Thorrington - 2 caps

#1 - June 7, 2001 vs. Ecuador
#2 - June 22, 2008 vs. Barbados

7 years, 15 days between caps.

Just a guess: Meola (7/94 until 1/99)

OK, so not Meola, since Thorrington went almost 7 years between caps.
