Born in Chicago Reginnald Jacob Cannon, better known as Reggie, started playing soccer since he was a kid. After his experience at the FC Dallas Academy, he went to UCLA Bruins in Los Angeles, California where he appeared in 20 matches. Soon, he left university to join FC Dallas where he remains until today. But his soccer career is about to make a twist. His career look like's going to Europe.
Boavista FC sounds like an ideal place to continue his young road in soccer. The 22-year-old right back would have several chances to get consistent minutes as the Portuguese just lost a player in his position. Also his potencial team has the sixth-best defense in the local league and usually plays internationally, mostly in the Europa League.
Furthermore, Boavista FC has an afilliation with Lille Olympic Sporting Club from France. In case Cannon performs over the expectations in Portugal, travelling to the Ligue 1 would be another big step in his career. The defense has a value of $3.5M what also would help Dallas expand its coffers.
