The pacy and direct forward used fantastic league form in 2009 and 2010 to catapult himself into the fold for the 2010 FIFA World Cup, where Findley snatched a regular starting role. Setting career highs for games and minutes played, he served as Jozy Altidore’s primary strike partner in South Africa. He had a career-year in 2009 that culminated in an MLS Cup title with Real Salt Lake, and after the 2010 season he has taken his talent overseas where he now continues his professional career with Nottingham Forest.
