Carter Vickers backtracked to force his way into the contention for America’s World Cup plans

If Cameron Carter Vickers had taken off his Celtic shirt and plastered Gregg Berhalter’s face underneath, he couldn’t have done more to attract the attention of his national team manager on Sunday.

At the Ibrox, the match winner – with the kind of ending Giorgos Giakoumakis would be proud of – the tall defender excelled when Ange Postecoglou needed him most, fending off countless Calvin Bassey crosses and keeping Kemar Roofe very quiet with Carl Starfelt. . He may have gone swimming soon.

It was the perfect demonstration of an American who dreamed of getting into his manager’s World Cup plans before the November show in Qatar. And given that Carter Vickers last played for the US in the days before Covid and has plenty of good defenders ahead of him, it won’t be easy.

But compatriot Sebastian Soto believes anything is possible and has helped the Celtic star get back in contention before the end of the season.

“This is all football,” said the Livingston forward, who fueled his ambitions to form the team. “There were also qualified guys you didn’t expect and things can change in a matter of weeks.

“Cam played very well for Celtic and it’s no surprise. For me and the other guys, we just have to keep our heads down and keep working. You never know what’s going to happen. ”
