Toronto captain Bradley becomes fourth youngest to reach 100 USA caps

Michael Bradley notched his 100th cap for the United States national team on Tuesday, becoming the fourth youngest to do so.

Bradley captained his country in Tuesday's CONCACAF Gold Cup opener against Honduras, with the night also marking a century of appearances for Bradley in national team colours.

The 27-year old made his debut for the national side back in 2006, under the tutelage of his father Bob Bradley, who was head coach at that time.

“I think it's a very, very special moment for every player that makes it to 100 caps for his country," USMNT head coach Jurgen Klinsmann told the media on Monday night.

“It means a lot to the player, and you want to kind of take it all in."

Bradley became the 15th man to reach the 100 cap mark as the man he replaced as skipper, Clint Dempsey, scored a double in the 2-1 victory in Frisco, Texas.
