Just read that a few minutes ago. Huge for the US. Will see if he can have an impact at the World Cup. With not a lot of playing time at Bayern, may be a little too green right now.

Wonder if JK promised him a roster spot which is why he's committing to the US?

All the hoops that Zelalam has to jump through to even be able to play for the USA might be a big problem for us. I really hope we can get him though he is going to be a big time player!!

Had to look up Zelalam and found out he is 15. Geeze, it must be nice to be going to a renowned soccer academy in London at that age.

He's 17 now and has already made an appearance for the big club in an FA match against Coventry City.

This is huge.

MLS is growing, seemingly exponentially and more stars are coming before retirement.

I expect the next 5-10 years to be a LOT of fun for soccer fans in the U.S.

I stand corrected. It would be nice to get a couple young up and comers to play for the USMNT.

FIFA has officially approved the nationality switch.

I thought he had dual citizenship and he has not played for an older than U-23 team, correct? Wasn't it just a matter of declaring officially?

I feel like Zelalem is far too young for us to be worrying about getting him. We have seen him just a couple of times in pre season matches. I hope I am wrong but he still hasn't proved much.

Green, johannsen, and Jozy are the future of USA in 2018

Glad he made the switch

Not quite ready. Quick but easily knocked off the ball. Had a rough go for the 1st 15-20 but had some flourishes in the last 10 minutes.

I thought the analysts were a bit rough on Green. On that 2nd goal, he just fell down on the play that allowed Mexico to score. He has speed and skill, was a bit nervous at first, but showed flashes. Green has potential and I liked his aggressiveness.
