Long-time U.S. national team defender Steve Cherundolo and former U.S. women’s national team goalkeeper Hope Solo led a group of five players that garnered more than 50 percent of the vote, but lost out in the 2020 election to the National Soccer Hall of Fame.

Players must receive 66.7 percent of the votes.

One-time USMNT captain and defender Carlos Bocanegra was named on 122 ballot, for 68.5 percent of the vote and was elected, the Hall announced Tuesday. He will be inducted in 2021 because the 2020 induction ceremonies in Frisco, Texas were called off due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Next were Cherundolo and Solo with 102 votes and 57.3 percent each.

They were followed by Kate Sobrero Markgraf (93, 52.2 percent), Shannon Boxx (93, 52.2 percent), who played for the New York Power (Women United Soccer Association) and Jaime Moreno (90, 50.6 percent).

All of the aforementioned players were members of the men’s or women’s national teams except for Moreno, a Bolivian international who played for D.C. United for most of his career. He also performed one season for the MetroStars.

Former English international midfielder David Beckham garnered 81 votes and 45.5 percent.

Among metropolitan area players who earned at least 10 percent of the vote included: former MetroStars/Red Bulls standout Clint Mathis (43, 24.2 percent), Tenalfy, N.J. native Gregg Berhalter (39, 21.9 percent), who is the USMNT, and former Red Bulls forward Thierry Henry (20, 11.2), who is the Montreal Impact coach.
