Kyle Beckerman…In 1998!

United States Panama Gold Cup Soccer

For Kyle Beckerman, Real Salt Lake’s central midfielder and team captain, this is his shining moment, getting a callup from the U.S. national team for the 2009 CONCACAF Gold Cup for his efforts in helping lead RSL from certain destruction to hope for a bright future.

Saturday night in Philadelphia, he solidified his place as only he could, with his flowing dreadlocks and inspired play leading the way to a second -half game tying goal–his first international goal–that all but crushed the hopes of Panama, bringing the U.S. back from what looked like certain defeat in the Americans’ 2-1 win Saturday. <via examiner.com>

Kyle Beckerman has come a long way since these photos were shot at a youth tournament last decade! Back then he was crushing opponents on a local scale and now he is doing it on the National level.

The best picture of the set has to be Beckerman celebrating a goal with his opponents walking away dejected in the background. It was a sign of things to come.

Does anyone know if any of Beckerman’s former youth teammates play in the MLS?
