Castrol Index Special Feature - Rating the Players

A SoccerNation News exclusive: RATING Landon Donovan, Michael Bradley, Matt Besler and Jermain Defoe.

Still stuck at number 16, LA Galaxy's star mid-fielder may have had the fans chanting his name but was not very effective on the field. He was quite unlucky to see his 10th minute header hit the crossbar. The LA mid-fielder attempted only one shot in the entire match, which was blocked by the opposition. He therefore got minimal credit for his shooting activity. In passing he wasn't any more successful.

For the Full Castrol Index, the top five spots are:

  • No. 1 Clint Dempsey (Seattle Sounders)
  • No. 2 Bradley Wright-Phillips (New York Red Bulls)
  • No. 3 Robbie Keane (LA Galaxy)
  • No. 4 Bill Hamid (D.C. United)
  • No. 5 Fanendo Adi (Portland Timbers)
