Pantheon of Players

There are quite a few soccer pubs in Albufeira where the USA is based at the Algarve Cup and we stopped at one to snap this pic of a bunch of players who may be one-dimensional on the wall, but are certainly not on the soccer field. Can you name all the world class players in this pic? Hint: One of them was the 2007 Algarve Cup MVP and leading scorer.
