Young defender Cameron Carter-Vickers has been rewarded for his impressive progress this year by being named in the senior USA squad for the first time ahead of this month’s 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifiers against Mexico and Costa Rica.
The 18-year-old centre-back, a product of our academy system, has been a regular face in our matchday squad this season and has earned two competitive starts to date – both in the EFL Cup.
His talents have now been recognised by USA boss and legendary former Spur Jurgen Klinsmann, who has handed him his first ever senior international call-up for the clash with rivals Mexico in the early hours of next Saturday (November 12) and the trip to Costa Rica in the early hours of Wednesday, November 16.
Cameron first appeared for the States’ Under-18s side at the Vaclav Jezek International Youth Tournament in Kromeriz, Czech Republic, in August, 2014. He has since played for their Under-17s and Under-23s and featured for them at the FIFA Under-20 World Cup in New Zealand in the summer of 2015.
Last month, he captained the USA Under-20s in a four-nation tournament involving England, the Netherlands and Germany.
