Klinsmann Finally Calls Up Lee Nguyen

Lee-NguyenFinally!!! US men’s national team coach Jurgen Klinsmann has included New England Revolution and MLS MVP candidate Lee Nguyen in his 25-man roster for their upcoming friendlies. The US will take on World Cup quarterfinalists Colombia at Fulham’s Craven Cottage in London, England, on Friday before closing out the year with a match in Dublin against the Republic of Ireland on Nov. 18.

Nguyen has been left out of the national team picture for seven years, but after becoming the first New England player to score 20 goals in a season since Taylor Twellman scored 23 in 2007, even Klinsmann could not overlook Nguyen.

While Nguyen was not a surprise selection based on his performance this season, that is not the case with the selections of Miguel Ibarra from Minnesota United and Jordan Morris from Stanford University and the Seattle Sounders’ youth system.

US Squad
Goalkeepers: Brad Guzan (Aston Villa), Bill Hamid (D.C. United), Sean Johnson (Chicago Fire), Nick Rimando (Real Salt Lake)

Defenders: DaMarcus Beasley (Houston Dynamo), Matt Besler (Sporting Kansas City), John Brooks (Hertha Berlin), Geoff Cameron (Stoke City), Timmy Chandler (Eintracht Frankfurt), Greg Garza (Club Tijuana), Fabian Johnson (Borussia Mönchengladbach), Jermaine Jones (New England Revolution), DeAndre Yedlin (Seattle Sounders)

Full list of MLS call-ups for international window
Midfielders: Kyle Beckerman (Real Salt Lake), Alejandro Bedoya (Nantes), Mix Diskerud (Rosenborg), Julian Green (Hamburg), Alfredo Morales (Ingolstadt), Lee Nguyen (New England Revolution)

Forwards: Jozy Altidore (Sunderland), Miguel Ibarra (Minnesota United), Jordan Morris (Stanford), Rubio Rubin (Utrecht), Bobby Wood (1860 Munich), Chris Wondolowski (San Jose Earthquakes)

      Unless you are a Crew ticket holder or belong to something like Sam’s army Lonnie, it looks like a ticket reseller like StubHub is your only choice for tickets to the game

    When will the venue for USA vs Honduras be decided and announced and when will tickets go on sale? What a win vs Mexico! It was great to see so many foreign based players! Our defense looked a bit suspect however. Hopefully that will improve with time, otherwise things will be same-ole-same-ole come cup time!
