Would You? Eric Lichaj, USMNT

Eric Lichaj trains with the USMNT in October 2010. Definite thigh potential detected. Image source: AP Photo/Daylife.

If there’s one thing we can take from International friendlies, it’s the opportunity to become acquainted with some hot new faces that we may otherwise not notice. Thank you, FIFA.

Stemming from our call-for-USMNT arms and legs, today we’ve got defender Eric Lichaj (prn. Leehigh) to pass around for inspection. This tall, dark, farmer’s tanned man currently plays his club football with Leeds United, on loan from Aston Villa since earlier this year. Capped by the USMNT three times, we’ve got hope that this midwestern cutie sees his fair share of future chances since we can never resist a good pair of deep-set eyes and bulging calf muscles.

Although a quick Google trawl produces some concerning results in the hair department, he’s thankfully sorted his barnet by now. While we still need to explore his contribution to our abdominal department in further detail, early results indicate that we would.

Why the heck not, right Kickettes?

    I like this kind mutual communication very much. I can learn much from that. The opinion that everyone gives also can be as useful information.

  4. Jane says:

    Does anybody know if Lichaj is single? ;)

  5. Kat says:

  6. mrs LBaines says:

    Yummy! He is HOT!!!

  7. Kiara says:

    Is it me or does he really look like eric bana in the second picture. They even have the same first name :O

  9. Alex says:

    Yay for Eric representing the random suburbs of Chicago! He's a LOT hotter in real life.

  10. ToysForBots says:

    Like someone else said, he really isn't all that photogenic, but in person he's really hot! I saw him right up close at the USA-Poland match in Chicago, and he is definitely cute. I like him better when his hair's just a tiny bit longer, though. So…yes, yes I would.

  11. bri_saldana says:

    He's an exciting footballer….and exciting to look at too ;D

  12. shay says:

    the second pic is not a good one, but being as how I have gotten a good look at him while watching him on tv with club and country that's a big YES INDEED!

  13. JaneSpotting says:

    Oh twist my arm? No need. I would. Nice scouting lasses!

  14. yayyyy says:

    OMG i would stay single for the rest of my life instead of starting a relationship with him!!!!!!

  15. EllieLUFC says:

    It might have something to do with the fact that he is with Leeds United, but he also showed his beautiful tummy during the Swansea game a few weeks ago…
    Love you Kneehigh Lichaj xo

  16. [...] today, you might be interested to learn that our very own Eric Lichaj (Leeds United, who?) is the subject of an all-important inquiry: Would [...]

  17. PC92 says:

    Thanks for posting something about Americans! Intersting to see Lichaj here, he wasn't a favorite with others before. He's not a bad looking guy, though.

  18. Yanks4ever says:

    What took you guys so long!?! I was asking myself this question after the friendly with Poland, where he got his first cap. The answer of course is Hell Yes!

    • Elisa says:

      Same! Except his first cap was against Colombia, because he didn't play for the Poland game. But he was called up :)

      • Yanks4ever says:

        D'oh. I don't know why I thought his first cap had been the Poland friendly. Lets just say that my memory was faulty because of lust :)

    • Navi says:

      I noticed him back in October also.

  19. Emily says:

    absolutely!!! for two reasons- 1. he's cute, and 2. maybe he'll introduce me to carlos. or benny. or dempsey. the list goes on…

  20. pinkimartini says:

    Hm…I’m passing on this one. I’m really feeling Mikkel Diskerud (currently with Stabaek but also on the USMNT). And he’s got pretty amazing hair.

  21. balicious says:

    despite i don't know him very well, i would do!!

  22. Navi says:

    YES! I noticed him back in October. I thought "Who's that hot guy with the really nice throw ins?" I love Lichaj and he is part of the future for the MNT. Glad you noticed him. He's my favorite! :)

  23. senora ramos says:

    it's a yes from me :)

  24. Cammie says:

    There's something kind of Bruce Wayne-era Christian Bale about him, no?,,10265~9… (I just realized that I'm not sure if we're allowed to post links. If not, sorry! Feel free to take that one away).

    Also, arms. Helloooo. I second (third? fourth?) the fact that these aren't good photos of him. I saw him play live against Colombia. In person, he is bee-yooooo-tee-ful.

  25. Cymraeg_Ddraig says:

    Yes he can definately join the "hot with the unpronounceable surname" club. He'll be rubbing shoulders with hot ballers such as Niko Krancjar and Carlos Boconegra.

  26. Elisa says:

    These aren't good photos of him, Kickette–if you guys look on the AV website, there are some from a signing that he did over Christmas that are a lot better, and some outtakes from the US vs. South Africa game too.

    Seriously, girls (and boys?). Watch the game from last night–or any of the games that he's played for AV. Dark hair, hazel-y eyes, perfect cheekbones. The guy is attractive…and a darn good defender with some very, very nice arm muscles. Plus, he's a former University of North Carolina Tar Heel. That's enough for me.

    • Elisa says:

      Although, really, instead of knocking you for not choosing good photos, I should thank you for putting him up. He's been a USMNT fangirl best-kept-secret so far. Glad to see him getting some attention :)

    • Navi says:

      Thank you! The pictures from the signing are much better. Also, great improvement with the hair from UNC.

  27. heythereivannah says:

    Absolutely I would. I'm a sucker for dark hair and deep eyes. The few interviews he's done portrays him to be pretty low-key and no nonsense (a la Michael Bradley). Give him a few years and he'll be a regular for the stars and stripes at a defender position, probably replacing either the adorable Steve Cherundolo at right back or the aged-like-fine-wine Carlos Bocanegra at left back, both of whom are Bob Bradley staples when they're healthy.

    • liz says:

      you got me with the "a la michael bradley" compare anything to that man and it becomes instantly hotter. but I really do love Eric Lichaj, and it killed me when he was in G. Houllier's doghouse after a not-so-impressive game vs. manchester city. although it now depresses me that I have kickette competition :)

      • heythereivannah says:

        Love me some Michael Bradley. I was so excited when he transferred to Villa because I had fantasies of a Lichaj/Bradley world domination. Alas, it was not meant to be because Eric was loaned to Leeds the same week. Damn it, Houllier…

  28. mochara says:

    I'm sorry Kickette but you can can keep him, not really my type =/

  29. sarrible says:

    Last night in Nashville he appeared to be sporting a truly terrible, pervtastic mustache. It was Not Good, especially in comparison to all the rest of the hotness on the field.

  30. Ali says:

    I love me some Eric. Such a cute :)

  31. xoWinnie says:

    he was hot in the first picture. but the second one is just not flattering so…i dunno!

    this will require some careful consideration!

  32. lalalalalalala....:) says:

    nope!!!!!!!! would not!!! sorryyyyy :)

  33. IrishBlue says:

    Hmmmm, I think I will have to say no. He's definately not ugly, but I dunno, he's missing a certain je ne sais quoi.

  34. Amanda says:

    Yes I would!

  35. Gladys says:

    Hell's yeah! He's cute!
