Dubbed by USMNT coach and former DC United coach Bruce Arena as the best man-marker in MLS, Carlos Llamosa wasted no time becoming a regular with the USMNT after becoming a US citizen in 1998.
Llamosa was part of two MLS Cup-winning teams with United, and in 2001 he led a Miami Fusion defense that was hailed as one of the best in the league. His defensive skills and extensive professional experience in both the US and Colombia made Llamosa one of the most highly-regarded American defenders during his National Team career.
After taking the 2005 season off, Llamosa was summoned back to Major League Soccer to play for Chivas USA under Bob Bradley, who was an assistant coach with DC United when Llamosa was there. Injuries continued to plague him through 2007, and he retired at the end of that season.
