FRISCO, Texas (AP) Michael Bradley will get his 100th cap for the U.S. in Tuesday's CONCACAF Gold Cup opener against Honduras, becoming the 16th American to reach the century mark.

The 27-year-old midfielder was appointed captain of the U.S. squad by coach Jurgen Klinsmann last week after Clint Dempsey was suspended by Major League Soccer and the U.S. Soccer Federation for a confrontation with a referee last month.

Bradley was among five players on the field for every minute of the Americans' 2010 World Cup campaign, scoring a late equalizer that salvaged a 2-2 draw against Slovenia. He also started all four games at last year's tournament in Brazil, though his form was at times lacking.
