The USA National team that took part in London 1948 Olympic Games. L-R: Kenny Beck, Bob Bray, Ralph Budelman, Lee Case, Devere Christensen, Harold Dash, Dixon Fiske, Eddie Knox, Jerry Miller, Don Tierney and Frank Walton. Despite winning the initial game 7-0 against Uruguay and tying the powerful Belgium 4-4, the US team lost the decisive game against Sweden with 7-0 and thus was eliminated from the further competition.
