This nice piece on Kyle Beckerman over at mlssoccer.com gives some good perspective on how he performed in the Gold Cup and what his position brings to the table. While he's sometimes been slated for who-knows-what-reason (perhaps it's the hair), it's nice to see him getting some recognition from people who actually understand his position.
Interesting to note: El Salvador's coach Augustin Castillo describes how he tried to set his side out to limit Beckerman's tactical involvement and failed.
Also interesting is this little quote from one Mix Diskerud: "He wins so many balls and is a really good team player. It's just fun to stand next to him, watch him do his thing and then suddenly you have the ball and you can make a play."
