Introducing Sony’s USA Team Ambassador for the World Cup ….

Tags: Sony Handycam ®, USA

He is the fourth most capped goalkeeper in U.S. soccer history, but may be the best the country has ever produced.


Despite some issues early on with his work visa, and a move to Liverpool that saw his chances limited, Brad Friedel found a home with Blackburn Rovers in 2000. At Ewood Park he became one of the top goalkeepers in the Premier League and was soon considered among the best American exports ever.

In 2002, Friedel’s outstanding showing in the World Cup in Japan and South Korea earned him the nickname ‘Human Wall’ and also led to the USA making a surprise run to the quarterfinals, where a narrow loss to Germany ended their dream.

From the start of the 2004-2005 season until 2012, Friedel played in 310 consecutive Premier League matches, a record run, and in that same time span became the oldest player ever for Aston Villa and the oldest to play in a competitive match for Tottenham Hotspur.

His run of consecutive matches finally came to an end in October of 2012, but his longevity and consistency in goal have made him one of the most famous players in the history of American soccer.

So join Brad for his exclusive blogs and videos on USA and the challenges facing the team in South America…right here with Sony, on, Facebook and Twitter.
