Cameron tallies first Premier League goal

The USA defender netted a first-half equalizer for his first club goal since moving to Stoke City from the Houston Dynamo.
Geoff Cameron's Premier League goal-scoring account is officially open.

In his 40th league game with Stoke City since moving from the Houston Dynamo in the 2012 summer transfer window, Cameron netted a first-half equalizer in the Potters' eventual 3-1 loss to Arsenal at the Emirates on Sunday.

Cameron, who started at right back, fired home with his left foot from about 20 yards, following up a Marko Arnautovic shot from close range that hit the left post and ricocheted out to the top of the area. Cameron had started the sequence by coming up with a turnover and pushing forward down the right flank. Steven N'Zonzi then found Arnautovic over the top with a pinpoint ball that the Austrian directed on frame only to be denied by the woodwork.

Cameron pounced on the opportunity in the 26th minute to cancel out Aaron Ramsey's 5th-minute opener, only for Mesut Ozil to set up two more goals for the hosts.

For Cameron, it was his first goal on the club level in almost two years, with his last strike coming for the Dynamo on Sept. 24, 2011 in a 1-0 win over FC Dallas. He also scored in the USA's 4-2 loss to Belgium on May 29 for his first international goal.
