On Tuesday, the U.S. Men’s National Team received the news they were hoping for.

U.S. Soccer announced that FIFA has approved Aron Johannsson’s one-time switch to become a member of the USMNT setup, clearing the way for Johannsson to make his debut in Wednesday’s friendly match in Sarajevo vs. Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Johannsson announced on July 29 that he wanted to pledge his future to the USMNT over Iceland, the nation where he grew up after spending the first two years of his life in Alabama. On Monday, the AZ Alkmaar forward was included in the USMNT roster, and now he’s officially eligible to play for the squad going forward.

What do you make of this news? Excited to see Johannsson suit up for the USMNT tomorrow? What are your expectations of him? Do you see him starting or coming off the bench?
