Eddie Johnson plays striker for D.C. United in Major League Soccer and represented the United States in the 2006 World Cup in Germany.

Already an established player on the US Under-17 team and having trained at the Bradenton Academy, Johnson became one of the youngest players to sign with MLS, and was drafted by the Dallas Burn as a Project-40 player in the second round of the 2001 MLS SuperDraft. In his first three years in the league, he did not get much playing time, and was very inconsistent when he did get on the field. Johnson scored just two, two, and three goals for Dallas in those seasons, while missing a lot of time with US youth national teams.

Johnson came into his own at the end of 2003, at the FIFA World Youth Championship in the United Arab Emirates. Eddie scored four goals to win the tournament's Golden Boot. He translated the success at the world stage to MLS, as in 2004 he scored more goals than in his first three seasons combined: 12, to co-lead the league in that department, becoming the youngest player to achieve that feat in MLS history.

In May 2005, Johnson suffered an injury to the toes of his right foot that sidelined him until August of that year. After returning to MLS in August, and making a brief re-appearance with the national team on September 7, 2005, Johnson reinjured his toes in mid-September and is sidelined until January 2006. With Dallas in salary cap trouble, Johnson was traded to the Kansas City Wizards on February 14, 2006 for two allocations.

Johnson, who has blazing speed, received his first cap and scored his first goal for the senior US national team against El Salvador on October 9, 2004, becoming one of a small group of American players to get his first international goal in a World Cup Qualifier. He then scored a hat-trick in his second appearance, all in a 17-minute span against Panama, just four days later. He totaled seven goals in his first six World Cup qualifiers and is already third on the U.S. all-time scoring list in World Cup qualifiers.

Towards the end of the 2013 MLS season, Johnson openly made pleas for an improved contract. Salary cap issues prevented Seattle from offering this and so Johnson was cut from the team with the intention of his rights been traded. Johnson was traded to D.C. United in exchange for allocation money on December 17, 2013.

On May 17, 2014, Johnson scored his first goal for D.C. United in the 84th minute against the Montreal Impact.

In March 2015, after an extended medical leave, it was reported that Johnson might need to retire due to a heart condition.
