Oguchi Onyewu

08 June, 2006

Oguchi Onyewu from USA

Name:  Oguchi Onyewu

Date of birth:  13 May 1982

Height:  192 cm

Weight:  91 kg

Position:  Defender

Current Club:  Standard Liege (BEL)

Int'l Goals:   1 (as of 4-Jun-2006)

Int'l Caps:  14 (as of 4-Jun-2006)

First Int'l Cap:  USA v. Panama (13-Oct-2004)


Likely to be employed as back-up to the more experienced members of Bruce Arena's squad this summer, Oguchi Onyewu will be an integral part of the bright future the USA can look forward to.

The 24-year-old caught the eye of European scouts while playing for the American Under-17 squad and signed for French side Metz after two seasons playing in college.

After struggling to make an impact he then spent time on loan in Belgium, first with La Louviere and then with Standard Liege for whom he has since signed permanently.

During his first full season with the club, he established himself as one of the best defenders in Belgium and is surely bound for bigger and better things.

He is only just into double figures in terms of caps but even if 'Gooch' doesn't add to that tally in Germany, he will be a better player for the experience.
