Future Watch: Reggie Cannon Rookie Soccer Cards, FC Dallas – In December 2016, Reggie Cannon was signed by MLS club FC Dallas as a homegrown player after coming through the ranks of the team’s academy. Cannon helped the academy win two straight national titles. He then spent a year playing for perennial college powerhouse UCLA before joining the MLS side.
Cannon got a chance to spend some time training with Bayern Munich in late 2017, due to a partnership with the Texas club and the powerhouse German club. Valuable experience for a young up-and-coming player.
The 21-year old right back fits into today’s game smoothly by getting up and down the wing, helping create attacking possibilities as well as defending sturdily. He contributed to a FC Dallas defense that had six shutouts in his 28 regular season appearances.
Cannon has scored one goal in each of the last two regular seasons for the MLS side, but also recently notched his first playoff tally against Seattle Sounders. He is skilled on the ball and adept with either foot. He has pace and is an intelligent player who reads the game well.
That has not gone unnoticed by the coaches of the U.S. National team. Cannon already has nine international caps for the United States. Four of those appearances came in the summer’s CONCACAF Gold Cup competition, including a start in the final against rival Mexico. He has recently been called into the team again for the upcoming CONCACAF Nations League matches in November. If he continues to progress, the 2022 World Cup could be a breakout competition for Cannon.
Collectors can find Reggie Cannon’s cards in 2019 Topps MLS.
