Landon Donovan and Clint Dempsey may have been more glamorous arrivals from the United States in the Premier League over the years, though few American imports have been as solid across a few seasons on these shores than Stoke City’s Geoff Cameron.
With Visit Britain’s exciting competition to bring the biggest Super Fan in the world over to England to take in a Premier League game of their choosing in mind, it’s time to take a look at someone who has embarked on that very Transatlantic journey, to much success.
Signed by the Potters from Houston Dynamo way back in 2012, the versatile defender has amassed well over 100 Premier League appearances for a club constantly on the up. Able to operate as either a right-back or in central defence, Cameron is perhaps the most formidable USMNT star we’ve seen ply his trade on these isles.
A prominent figure in the local community during his time with Dynamo, Cameron helped raise money for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and has been working with charities around the Stoke area since joining well over four years ago now. As formidable as he is on the field of play, it’s clear the United States international takes his standing as a role model seriously indeed.
Noted for his physical style of play, the versatility he boats up and down the park has made him crucial to Mark Hughes’ cause at the bet 365 Stadium. Whether it be bombing up and down the flanks, pushing onto into midfield or forming a wonderfully solid defensive shield, the 31-year-old is a lynchpin in the Potteries.
Despite the ever-improving standard of American soccer, few outfield USMNT stars can claim to have had such a solid career in the Premier League, making him the ultimate flag-bearer on these shores.
