A sports bar at Craven Cottage was renamed after this American striker that became quite a popular man with The Cottagers. After securing a contract in Germany with Wolfsburg he returned to the US to become a key player for Columbus Crew.

At the world cup in 2002, McBride scored one of the most iconic American goals when he put the ball in the top corner from a Tony Sanneh cross. The two had played together at Milwaukee Rampage in 1994. With the goal he became the first American to score at two World Cups.

With Fulham he notched home a goal in every forth appearance he made, winning player of the year two times during his five year stint with them, however not many remember his loan stints with Preston North End and Everton before Fulham secured his services in 2003.
