Cameron Makes a Strong Impression With U.S. National Team

Former men’s soccer player Geoff Cameron is making his presence felt with the U.S. Men’s National Team. On January 22, Cameron helped lead the United States to a 1–0 win over Venezuela. Cameron anchored the back line alongside Michael Parkhurst—brother of former URI women’s soccer player Molly Parkhurst ’08—in the first U.S. win over a South American country since 2007.

“Geoff is a real joy to work with because he is very focused,” U.S. Men’s Head Coach Jürgen Klinsmann said after the match. “He’s really dedicated to everything he’s doing, and we asked him to guide the back line, together with Michael Parkhurst, to push it high up and kind of develop his passes and play them straight into midfield and even into forwards.

“We’re impressed at how he’s doing that. We knew he had the talent, but then to implement it is another story. He did that tonight.”
