U.S. national team legends Claudio Reyna and Tony Meola were the easiest selections in the latest ballot for the National Soccer Hall of Fame, and voters agreed, making them the headliners in the Hall's Class of 2012.

Reyna received 96 percent of the voting and Meola received 90 percent of the voting to headline a class that also includes former U.S. national team standout Desmond Armstrong and former U.S. Women's national team head coach Tony DiCicco.

Reyna earned 112 caps for the United States, serving as national team captain for a large part of his 13-year tenure with the national team.

Meola recorded 100 caps and was a member of three World Cup teams, including the famed 1990 team that helped snap the United States' 40-year-drought without a World Cup appearance.

DiCicco was the U.S. women's head coach when the women's team won the 1999 World Cup, while Armstrong enjoyed an 81-cap career for the men's team, and was a key member of the 1990 World Cup team.

What do you think of the selections? Who didn't make the Hall of Fame class that you feel deserved it?
