Edu makes Premier League debut as Stoke substitute

The former Rangers midfielder came on as a late substitute for Stoke City, joining Geoff Cameron to help see out the Potters' 0-0 draw with Liverpool at Anfield.
American midfielder Maurice Edu made his Premier League debut Sunday, earning his first minutes since joining Stoke City from embattled Scottish side Rangers during the summer transfer window.

Edu entered as an 80th-minute substitute, replacing central midfielder Charlie Adam and helping the Potters see out a scoreless draw with Liverpool at Anfield.

Edu was on the field along with fellow U.S. national team player Geoff Cameron, who was deputized as a right back by manager Tony Pulis for the third straight game, as the final whistle blew, securing a valuable road point for the mid-table club.

Edu had been a regular for Rangers ever since joining the club in 2008 but has found it a little more difficult to find playing time with Stoke. Cameron, meanwhile, made his seventh start in all competitions for Stoke, playing the full 90 minutes.
