He’s not actually eligible for England.
And in the US, USMNT eligibility is based on the number of MLS kits and tickets a player sells, whoops, we're in troubleCitizenship rules don't matter. FIFA's rule on the subject:
Any player who refers . . . to assume a new nationality . . . shall be eligible to play for the new representative team only if he fulfils one of the following conditions:
a) He was born on the territory of the relevant association;
b) His biological mother or biological father was born on the territory of the relevant association;
c) His grandmother or grandfather was born on the territory of the relevant association;
d) He has lived continuously for at least five years after reaching the age of 18 on the territory of the relevant association.
He's eligible to play for England.
I've read Dortmond blocked the request to release him for U-23/Olympic qualifying due to the club's schedule, which is not that surprising as they have big plans for him.Also it’s the fact that he’s good enough right now to start on the Senior team anyways
I think it’s an ok roster. Apparently olympics qualifying doesn’t count as a FIFA event so clubs don’t have to release players. And I imagine our top u23s are gonna just be with the full team.The Olympic qualifying rooster (assuming that the Olympics take place), overall, a very young roster with a general lack of big names and am somewhat disappointed that some of the bigger U-23 names are not here.
CP coulda had a hat trick if not for bad luck, but he was the most dangerous player on the pitch which is incredibly impressive.Some good news. Pulisic was man of the match for Chelsea scoring two goals.
Chris Richards made his first team debut for Bayern Munich (who has wrapped up the title).
Indy Vassilev (19) made the Aston Villa squad vs. Chelsea
Plus Mason Mount. As a Gunners fan, Arsenal steals Pulisic from the Chelskis and he goes onto Premiership and global stardom. The USMNT fan in me doesn't want him anywhere near Emirates until they get their house in order.There's going to be a logjam at Chelsea next year with Ziyech and Werner coming in next year, and now possibly Havertz. Not sure where this leaves Abraham.
