Fulham McBride Tributes Continue

Fulham salute McBride's Magic Moments and it includes time with the U.S. National Team as well as Fulham matches:
USA v Italy, 17.06.06

World Cup 2006 and in a close-fought group match against Italy, Brian was the victim of a vicious elbow from Daniele de Rossi. Rather than theatrically writhing on the floor like many players would, he picked himself up, jogged to the sidelines for stitches and returned to lead the line for the remaining 60-plus minutes of the match.
I remember this match and the blood streaming from McBride's face.

Classic toughness.
