OMAHA, Neb. -- Creighton men's soccer defender/midfielder Eric Miller
been called up by the U.S. U-20 National Team for a training camp in
Houston and a series of upcoming international friendlies against
Uruguay (June 6, June 8) and Chile (June 12).
Miller, 19, is scheduled to join the U.S. U-20 National Team today in
Houston for camp. One of 20 players called into camp by head coach Tab
Ramos, Miller has participated in each of the three previous training
camps for the U.S. U-20 National Team in 2012.
While on national team duty, he will miss four Portland Timbers U-23s (his summer team) matches and
is scheduled to return to Portland on June 13.
A native of Woodbury, Minn., Miller is in his first season with the
Timbers U-23s. He has played in three league matches since joining the
team May 14, scoring a goal in a 4-1 win over Victoria Highlanders FC on
May 19. Miller also scored the Timbers U-23s’
lone goal in a 3-1 loss to PSA Elite in the first round of the 2012
Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup on May 15.
Miller had an impressive freshman season for Creighton in
2011, playing a key part in the team’s run to the NCAA College Cup
semifinals. He helped anchor Creighton’s backline that allowed just five
goals last season, and was named to both the Missouri
Valley Conference All-Freshman Team as well as to the all-freshman team
by College Soccer News.
