QUERETARO, Mexico – Mexican side Queretaro announced Tuesday that it has acquired United States international DaMarcus Beasley.
The 31-year-old had spent the previous two-and-a-half years with Puebla, where he scored 11 goals in 76 games.
Queretaro finished seventh in the 2013 Liga MX Apertura, advancing to the playoffs, where it was eliminated by Santos, 6-3 on aggregate, in the quarterfinals. Puebla finished in 13th place with 19 points, failing to qualify for post-season action.
Beasley, who has played in the 2002, 2006 and 2010 World Cup finals, captained the U.S. to its fifth CONCACAF Gold Cup title this July.
