Makin' The Donuts - Part Deux

I was planning to continue with another Americans Abroad keeper stat count, but ran into a slight availability snag. So I've set that one aside for the moment, and we'll hop over to the defenders. When it comes to back liners aiding in the collection of clean sheets, we have three active guys bearing down hard on the top three.

Just to clarify the parameters here, this count covers all top flights and selected second divisions (England, Germany, Spain, Italy, France, the Netherlands and Portugal), all domestic cups that earn a European berth for the winner and all UEFA cup competitions. Players were only credited when they played some of the game in defense; guys like Geoff Cameron, Thomas Dooley, Timothy Chandler and Fabian Johnson did not get credit for matches they played entirely in midfield/on the wing.

As usual, those with an asterisk are still active in Europe and able to add to their totals.
