Beckerman’s emergence as a fixture in the full team adds to an impressive legacy with the U.S. National Teams. He has been part of the programs since the age of 15, earning 40 caps with the U-17s and joining the U-23 squad that participated in the 2004 Olympic qualifying tournament in Mexico before making his senior debut as a substitute against Denmark on Jan. 20, 2007. Beckerman was in and out of the National Team before becoming a regular for the U.S. in 2011 under Jurgen Klinsmann, who values his consistent performance and effort. The energetic midfielder has long been a fixture in MLS, recording more than 325 games played since joining the league in 2000. Having just recently completed his eighth season with Real Salt Lake, Beckerman has captained his side to a pair of MLS Cup finals (winning the first in 2009), a CONCACAF Champions League final, the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup final in 2013 and its longest streak of undefeated home games.
