Possessing speed, quickness, and the ability to play on both sides of the ball, DaMarcus Beasley has experienced a mild renaissance as he enters his second decade of play with the U.S. National Team. The three-time World Cup veteran has represented the U.S. in World Cups at the U-17, U-20 and full-team level, as well as the FIFA Confederations Cup. Varying injuries during the past few years challenged his ability to get consistent playing time at Rangers in Scotland and Hannover 96 in Germany. Now with Puebla in the Mexican Primera Division, Beasley has established himself as a regular starter.
