Shane O'Neill

The Colorado Rapids sold homegrown talent Shane O’Neill on August 1st to Apollon Limassol of Cyprus.
At the end of August he officially joined Jupiler Pro League side Royal Mouscron-Péruwelz based in Belgium.
The United States Under-23 international, currently in Manchester to prepare for Thursday’s friendly against England in nearby Preston, quickly jetted into Belgium on Sunday to sign a two-year contract. O’Neill did not make an appearance for Cypriot bronze medalists Limassol.

The 21-year-old defender/midfielder born in Ireland and raised in Boulder, Colorado, has played for the U.S. under-20s and -23s, made 25 starts in 2013 and 21 last year.

O’Neill remains a crucial part of the US Under-23 team, currently looking to qualify for next summer’s Olympics. He will train with the team in Manchester, England, from Aug. 30-Sept. 8 and will feature friendlies against England on Sept. 3 at Deepdale Stadium in Preston, and Qatar on Sept. 8 at Gigg Lane in Bury.
