USMNT: Number of Caps for World Cup Openers (1990-2010)

Looking at the opening games of the World Cup for the USA in each of the past six tournaments, here's how many caps the entire team had at that moment:


Caps AvgMedian
1990 297 27.0029
1994 549 49.9146
1998 548 49.8249
2002 539 49.0041
2006 730 66.3671
2010 562 51.0952

2006 stands out, while it's interesting to see how similar 1994, 1998, 2002, and 2010 are. I wouldn't have expected the 2010 lineup to be the second most experienced.
