Aron Johannsson chooses USMNT over Iceland



With his one time switch, he is locked in to the USMNT. He doesn't have to actually get capped.

re: Aron Johannsson chooses USMNT over Iceland




excellent news. a young american suiting up in the eredivisie, if that tells me anything it's that the kid has some technical talent. here's hoping that he blossoms like our previous players who've spent time in the Netherlands.

Needs to play in the Bosnia friendly IMO.

We still need striker depth.

I will give Jurgen props on this. His out of state recruiting is Nick Sabanesque.

Johannsson has been doing very well with AZ since moving over.

the timing of this decision tells me that this could very well be in the works. I'd bet on it, tbh.

Doubt the switch gets approved in time for him to play, it took FIFA about a month to approve Jones and Johnson.

What we need to do us qualify for the WC before our last qualifier against panama, I think it is. And for that game call up Johannsen, Brooks, Zelalem, julian green, and Shawn Parker and just cap tie whoever we can

:dancing banana:

Highlight video I just watched puts him as our #2 striker.

Seriously though he looks fast and technically proficient.

re: Aron Johannsson chooses USMNT over Iceland


correct me if I'm wrong, but this guy is a first choice player at AZ, right?

If so, he's squarely in the discussion for a final 23 WC roster spot. A bit behind the ball, in terms of his familiarity with the team, but the talent is obviously there.

But honestly, guys, dual-nationality.

He's obviously picking the USMNT because he's not good enough for Iceland.

Agreed, but this switch already locks in Johannsson to the US. He's now ineligible to play for Iceland.

Explain. I think his dad actually needs to get US citizenship before Zelalem turns 18 or else we are up shite creek.

AJ Highlights
Looks like a much better version of Wondo with better on the ball skills and great poaching ability.

Tweezy and I are going to make Julian Green jerseys and tweet them to his dad. It should work.
