Holden has been plagued by trouble with the same right knee in the past, missing almost two years of football after sustaining a major injury against Manchester United in 2011.

He went down hurt in the 18th minute of the final on Sunday night and was duly substituted by manager Jurgen Klinsmann.

Klinsmann said: "We are very concerned about Stuart's situation.

"It looks like a very serious injury, but I'm not a doctor and I can't confirm it."

The former Germany striker added on ussoccer.com: "We'll get an MRI and he'll have all the tests done. Stu is a player that when something happens, he knows when something happens. Hopefully it's not as bad, but it's not looking good right now."

Holden said on Twitter after the match: "For all that know me and have supported me, I hope you know I will always prevail no matter what the outcome. Fingers crossed. Let's celebrate!"

Stoke's Brek Shea scored the game's only goal in the 69th minute to give the USA the trophy.

riting a minute by minute account on Berbatov would be like chronicling the days of the guy punished for sloth in the movie Se7en. Day 4 - lay in bed, did nothing - 15th minute, stood there did nothing .
