Monday, May 12, 2014

 

Cranston native Michael Parkhurst and Attleboro native Geoff Cameron were both named to the preliminary U.S. World Cup soccer team for the 2014 Tournament in Brazil this summer.

Michael Parkhurst

Parkhurst, 30, played at La Salle in high school before attending Wake Forest in college.  He began his professional career with the New England Revolution in 2005 after being selected with the 9th overall pick in the 2005 draft by the Revs.  He's played professionally in Denmark and Spain, and made his return to the U.S. and MLS in 2014 with the Columbus Crew.

Parkhurst plays right back for the national team and will be making his first career World Cup appearance for the U.S. His career honors include MLS Rookie of the Year in 2005 and MLS Defender of the Year in 2007.  He also played for the U.S. in the 2008 Summer Olympics.

Cameron, 28, played college soccer at the University of Rhode Island and was also a part of the Rhode Island Stingrays Premier team before being drafted by the Houston Dynamo of MLS in 2008.  The 6'3" Cameron is a tall, lanky defender/midfielder and was named to the MLS Best XI Team in 2009, his second season as a professional.

Cameron signed with Stoke City of the English Premier League in 2012 and continues to play for the club today.  He's been on the U.S. National Team since 2010.
