BEASLEY LANDS IN HOUSTON
EXTRA TIME
BRIAN SCIARETTA - Wednesday, July 23, 2014
DaMarcus Beasley finally made it official today by signing with the Houston Dynamo and returning to MLS a decade after he left the Chicago Fire.

Beasley, 32, made his professional debut in 2000 with the Chicago Fire but left for PSV Eindhoven in 2004 where he played in the UEFA Champions League semifinals. Over his 10 years abroad, he also played for Manchester City, Rangers, Hannover, and Puebla.

"I am excited and ready to start this new chapter in my career," said Beasley. "I have heard great things from Brad (Davis) and Rico (Clark) about Houston, the team and the fans, and I'm excited to get to know them. I feel fit and ready to go and hope Dom (Kinnear) will see my work ethic and desire to play at a high level."

Beasley made history over the summer when he was selected to the U.S. national team for the World Cup in Brazil. In doing so, he became the first ever American player to play in four World Cups.
