Alfredo Morales may not be sniffing the field at Hertha Berlin this season, but that apparently has not stopped U.S. Men’s National Team head coach Jurgen Klinsmann from wanting to take a closer look at him.
Morales has been summoned into the upcoming January camp that will conclude with a friendly against Canada, according to a report from German outlet Bild. The 22-year-old Morales has been called up by Klinsmann before, but has not yet been capped.
This is Morales’ first selection since he was called into last summer’s camp prior to World Cup qualifying, and is somewhat surprising given his lack of playing time with Hertha Berlin this season. The versatile midfielder has not played in any league games for Hertha and only has a 45-minute substitue appearance in a DFB Pokal match in August to his name in the current campaign.
What do you think of Morales being called in? Surprised by his inclusion? Think he will earn his first cap vs. Canada?
