John Lucas "Jack" McBean (born December 15, 1994) is an American soccer player who plays as a forward for LA Galaxy.

Life and career[edit]

Club career[edit]

McBean, a California native, formally signed for LA Galaxy at the age of 16 in April 2011. As of July 2011, he was the youngest player to have signed for the club in its history. He had previously played for the LA Galaxy under-16s and, prior to that, Slammers FC and Corona del Mar High School.[1]

He was assigned the number 32 shirt for the 2011 Major League Soccer season.[2]

He made his first appearance for the club in a friendly match against Manchester City on July 24, 2011, coming on as a 66th-minute substitute for teammate Miguel Pedro López.[3] The Los Angeles Times noted that he "quickly provided a threat" after appearing, while Fox Sports West stated that he "immediately made an impact" in the game.[4][5] The match finished 1-1, but included a penalty shootout. Manchester City won the shootout 7-6, with McBean having his penalty saved by goalkeeper Joe Hart.[3] On October 23, 2011 McBean played his first league game against Houston Dynamo getting the start, and subsequently scored.

He moved down to the LA Galaxy's reserve club, LA Galaxy II, following the 2014 season.[6] On June 22nd, 2016 he was once again signed by LA Galaxy.[7]

McBean signed for English League One side Coventry City on a five-month loan deal on August 19th 2016.[8] The striker made his first-team debut as a substitute in the 1-1 draw with Morecambe in the FA Cup.[9]

International career[edit]

McBean has represented his country of birth at the under-17 age level. He played for the United States under-17s in the 2011 FIFA U-17 World Cup, in which the US reached the round of 16, and in the 2011 CONCACAF U-17 Championship, in which the US were champions.[2][10][11][12]

McBean has a Scottish father and is eligible to play for the senior national teams of the United States and Scotland. In June 2011, Scotland manager Craig Levein confirmed that he has instructed his chief scout, Michael Oliver, to continue a dialogue with the player and his parents to determine his interest in representing Scotland in future.[13][14][15] As of summer 2011, he has yet to confirm long-term allegiance to either country.[16][17]
