Recently Chris Wimmer, writer for Virginia Online Soccer News, got the opportunity to speak with former U.S. national team forward Joe-Max Moore.

Moore played for three world cup teams and two Olympic squads. While a member of the USMNT he compiled 100 caps (10th all-time) and 24 goals (4th all-time behind only Donovan, Wynalda, and McBride).

Until 2004 Moore held the Revolution record for assists and points.

It was a game for players on the bubble to make a case for their spot on the 23-man roster for the World Cup in June. The players who make the cut after the El Salvador game will surely be invited to the friendly next week against the Netherlands.
