Eddie Johnson is a lightning-fast striker with a nose for goal, but a man often thought to be unproductive for all the chances he's been given with the national team.

As a youth player, Johnson won the Golden Shoe at the 2003 World Youth Championships after scoring four times in the tournament. He made an equally impressive impact on the full national side in the build to the 2006 World Cup, scoring seven times in qualifying.

Despite the early success, Johnson has been a bit of an unknown since that time, having played in England with Fulham and Cardiff, before securing a loan to Aris in Greece this season.

Since joining the Greek side, Johnson has had a bit of a rebirth and has been finding the net with more regularity. The late push was just enough to help him earn a spot in the preliminary roster.

Did You Know? Eddie Johnson has scored as many goals in one match with Aris, 2, as he did in his entire time with Fulham and Cardiff combined.
