    Belize’s McCaulay tackles new challenge

    ATLANTA, Georgia – When the leading scorers in qualifying for Brazil 2014 were tallied, an unfamiliar name shared the spotlight with Robin Van Persie and Luis Suarez.

    Belize striker Deon McCaulay netted 11 goals in only eight games, a mark that left him level with the Manchester United and Liverpool superstars at the top of the global goals chart.

    Unlike the English Premier League pair, though, McCaulay does not ply his trade in Europe. 

    Last month, the 26-year-old joined North American Soccer League side Atlanta Silverbacks for the upcoming 2014 campaign.

    “It feels very good to be here in Atlanta, and I’m excited to play in the U.S.,” said McCaulay at the time of signing.  “I want to thank the Silverbacks organization for giving me the opportunity to come here and represent their team.”

    The 5-foot-9 forward comes to the Silverbacks from the Belmopan Bandits.  He has also played in Honduras with Deportes Savio.

    “His talent, speed, explosiveness, and knack for scoring goals is exactly what our team needs," said Silverbacks technical director Eric Wynalda. 

    Atlanta opens the new NASL season on April 13 at the defending champion New York Cosmos.
