Russell Teibert (born December 22, 1992) is a Canadian soccer player currently playing for Vancouver Whitecaps FC in Major League Soccer.

Career[edit]

Youth and amateur[edit]

Teibert attended St. Paul High School (Ontario) in Niagara Falls, Ontario, and had a brief spell with Toronto FC's academy, before joining the Vancouver Whitecaps Residency program in 2008. He appeared in friendly games with the Residency team during tours of Japan, Germany and Spain, and played in the prestigious Dallas Cup against youth academies from Argentina's Club Atlético River Plate and Germany's Eintracht Frankfurt and Brazil's São Paulo FC.

Teibert also played with the Vancouver Whitecaps Residency team in the USL Premier Development League in 2009[1] and 2010.[2]

Professional[edit]

Following the conclusion of the 2010 PDL season Teibert was called up to the Vancouver Whitecaps senior team. He made his professional debut on July 31, 2010 in a 2-2 tie with the Carolina RailHawks.[3] In doing so, Teibert became the 10th youngest player to appear in a competitive match for the Whitecaps men's team at 17 years and 221 days.

The club moved to Major League Soccer for the 2011 season. Teibert had a successful preseason and signed with the MLS Vancouver Whitecaps FC on March 17, 2011.[4] The league signed Teibert to a Generation Adidas contract which makes his salary exempt from the league's salary cap for a period normally lasting 1–3 years. Teibert was also signed as a homegrown player from Vancouver's residency program, meaning he did not have to go through the MLS SuperDraft process.

He made his MLS debut on March 19, in Vancouver's 2011 MLS opener against Toronto FC.[5] On May 11, 2013 Teibert scored his first two professional goals, both in the second half against the Los Angeles Galaxy in a 3-1 Whitecaps victory.[6]

International[edit]

Teibert has represented Canada at U-17, and U-20 levels. He was selected in Canada's squad for the 2009 CONCACAF U-17 Championship, and scored a goal from the penalty spot in their 1-1 draw with Honduras on April 21, 2009. Teibert was award the Canadian U-17 Player of the Year award in both 2008 and 2009, he became the first player in history to win the honour twice.[7]

Teibert earned his first cap for Canada's senior team August 15, 2012 in a friendly against Trinidad and Tobago. Teibert came on as a second-half substitute for Patrice Bernier, the game ended in a 2-0 victory.[8] On June 27, 2013 Teibert was listed as a part of the confirmed 23-man squad for Colin Miller's Canada squad for 2013 CONCACAF Gold Cup.[9]

After almost a year in between call-ups, in which rumours circulated of a row between player and coach, Teibert was recalled by Benito Floro on November 6, 2014 for a friendly against Panama.[10]
