Notes - Extremely rare player shirt believed to have been worn by Friedel for the Premier League match against West Ham United, played at Ewood Park on the 28th December 2002. A frosty festive affair ended in a 2-2 draw with Irish winger Damien Duff firing Rovers ahead in the opening 4 minutes only for an unfortunate Martin Taylor own goal to level the scores again before the half hour mark. Andy Cole looked to have sealed all three point for the hosts when he regained the lead with 12 minutes to play but a young Jermaine Defoe salvaged a draw for the Hammers with a late strike 4 minutes from time. Friedel played the full 90 minutes as he often did this season, the American was in superb form and kept a league high 15 clean sheets this campaign as Rovers recorded an impressive 6th place finish in the top flight. The former Brondby and Galatasaray man had joined the side from Liverpool in 2000 and spent 8 long years at Ewood becoming a one of the most iconic Noughties Premier League keepers in the process. The 82 time Team USA international later enjoyed spells with Aston Villa and Tottenham.
