Eddie Johnson has played an integral role in the growth of soccer in America. He started playing in the MLS as a teenager with the Kansas City Wizards and burst onto the scene as a prolific goal scorer.
Following the blinding start to his career, Eddie began receiving offers from clubs in England to come play overseas. After some internal debate, Johnson made the move to Fulham, a club based in London.
Johnson is now 30 years old and has seen it all. He’s played professionally in England, Greece, Wales, and the US. He’s played in a World Cup. He’s had rocks and bags of urine hurled at him during World Cup qualifiers.
Now, Eddie is playing with DC United of MLS and sat down to chat with us about his role in helping Bacardi find soccer’s most Untameable Fan.
