Justin Mapp (born October 18, 1984) is an American soccer player who currently plays for Montreal Impact in Major League Soccer. Mapp has been described as being versatile and known for possessing "speed and creative abilities from out wide, but also his ability to drift inside and generate offense."[1]

Career[edit]

Professional[edit]

Mapp graduated from the Bradenton Academy in 2001 and signed with MLS as a Project-40 player. He was drafted by D.C. United with the fourth overall pick in the 2002 MLS SuperDraft, but played only 28 minutes for DC in his first year as a pro. The Chicago Fire acquired Mapp for Dema Kovalenko before the 2003 season, and he has been an important player in the squad since, helping them to the 2003 US Open Cup. In two seasons with the Fire, Mapp scored six goals and added seven assists.

After eight years with Chicago, Mapp was traded to Philadelphia Union on 26 July 2010 in exchange for allocation money.[2] Mapp won "MLS Player of the Week" honors in Week 11 of the 2011 season for his 2 goal performance in the club's 6-2 win against Toronto FC.[3] This performance earned the recognition of the North American Soccer Reporters society. One of his goals was even nominated for the MLS Goal of the Week award.[4] On June 8, Mapp was named a nominee for the MLS All-Star Game.[5] On June 28, he was said to be leading in text voting for the All-Star Game.[6]

After a season and a half with Philadelphia, Mapp was selected by expansion franchise Montreal Impact in the 2011 MLS Expansion Draft on November 23, 2011. He said he was surprised to be unprotected by the Union.[7] On May 29, 2013 Mapp was awarded the 2013 George Gross Memorial Trophy for his play in the Canadian Championship, leading Montreal to victory over Vancouver Whitecaps FC in the final.[8] A year later, he claimed the award again[9] after Montreal defeated Toronto FC in the 2014 final making him one of only two players, the other being Dwayne De Rosario, to win the award twice.

International[edit]

Mapp has played for various youth United States national teams, including the 2001 Under-17 World Championship in Trinidad and Tobago. He started all five matches for the U.S. in the 2003 World Youth Championship in the United Arab Emirates. Mapp made his debut for the senior team on October 12, 2005 against Panama. Mapp also came on as a sub January 20, 2007 against Denmark, running 70 yards with the ball before setting up Jonathan Bornstein's game-winning goal. He also played for USA in Copa América 2007.
