Tony was born in the USA with his family originally coming from Gambia. He progressed from a successful College football career to play in the USL for the Milwaukee Rampage and the Minnesota Thunder before moving into the MLS with DC United. His performances earned him a move to Europe when he signed for Hertha Berlin in February 1999. He made his international debut in 1997 but has failed to establish himself a regular starting place. His lack of technical ability is made up by his physical presence and exceptional pace. He did not play in the 1998 World Cup Finals but has been nearly an ever present in qualifying.
