One of the closest watched storylines heading into the CONCACAF Gold Cup may be settled before the U.S. Men’s National Team begins camp in Nashville on June 25.
FC Dallas goalkeeper Jesse Gonzalez, who is wanted by the USMNT and Mexico has officially submitted the paperwork for his one-time switch to the American side according to Fox Sports.
If Gonzalez is good to go for the July competition, USMNT boss Bruce Arena could bring him into the squad as one of three goalkeepers. The goalkeeper previously featured for Mexican youth teams, making the one-time switch required for him to play for the U.S.
Gonzalez’s switch will also reignite the goalkeeper of the future debate. Ethan Horvath appeared to be first in line to the throne once Tim Howard and Brad Guzan retired from the international game, but that could be Gonzalez’s role moving forward if he lives up to all the hype.
