Club Career

Born and raised in Germany, Williams holds American citizenship through his father, an American serviceman stationed in Germany. He joined the youth system of his hometown club, Karlsruher SC, but in his teenage years switch to Freiburg's academy.

In 2008, Williams began playing for Freiburg's U-23 team. He made his first appearance for the first team in February 2010 when an injury crisis forced the club to use him as a right back. Typically, Williams plays as a defensive midfielder.

Williams entered the 2010-11 season with hopes to find regular playing time in the Bundesliga, but missed most of the season with a knee injury.

In August 2011, he transferred to Hoffenheim following after a contract dispute soured his relationship with Freiburg.

International Career

Williams made his national team debut in October 2011.

I hate to be the harbinger of bad news, ladies and gentlemen, but Michael Orozco will start for the US men's national team in Jacksonville.
