Matthew Miazga, born July 19, 1995, is an American professional soccer player who plays as a defender for Reading on loan from Chelsea and the United States National team.
In 2009, the New York Red Bulls Academy selected Miazga to participate in their program after just one year at Clifton High School. He was a key defensive player with the U-16 team that went on to win the 2012 U.S. Soccer Development Academy National Championship. The next year he was signed as a Homegrown Player by the club and by 2015 was a regular starter helping the team to win the Supporter’s Shield. Despite being offered a designated player deal after that season, his attention remained firmly fixed on playing in Europe.
In January of 2016 he agreed a four-and-a-half year contract with Chelsea. In the tunnel during his first match with the club against Aston Villa, he recounted that just a few years ago he would have been waking up early to watch the match on TV and now he was lined up with some of the world’s greatest players, ready to take the pitch. Miazga was later loaned to Vitesse in the Netherlands, playing every minute of their successful 2016-17 KNVB Cup campaign in which the club won their first trophy in more than 100 years. After beginning the 2018-19 season with Nantes in France, Miazga returned to England in a bid to help keep League Championship side Reading from relegation. Prior to his loan arrival, the Royals seemed a decent bet to drop, but Miazga’s presence stabilized the back line, leading Reading to earn more than double the points in the second half of the season and keep their place in England’s second tier.
