With just about a month remaining until the United States men’s national team return to their World Cup qualifying efforts in late March, they’ve received some good news in the form of a long-awaited return. Geoff Cameron has missed the last four months or so with a knee injury. After trips to specialists and much rehab, the veteran defender finally returned to the field for Stoke City on Sunday in the club’s 4-0 defeat to Tottenham Hotspur. He substituted on in the 82nd minute.
This is great news for Bruce Arena. Assuming all goes well for Cameron’s recovery, he should be available for selection when the USMNT roster is decided on in a couple of weeks. While we still don’t have any idea how Arena rates the European-based USMNT players, you’d have to assume someone with Cameron’s pedigree and track record would be an easy call-up if he’s available. The 31-year-old hasn’t played in a while, but his experience would be a good addition to the Arena’s plans in all likelihood.
What say you? Now that Cameron is back to playing, will he get a call-up in March?
