FIFA has approved Jermaine Jones' application to switch from the German national team to the U.S. men's national team.
The announcement comes after months of speculation about the switch, but now the approval is a bit anti-climactic since the U.S. team has already qualified for the 2010 World Cup and Jones is currently sidelined after his latest surgery to repair a fractured leg.
Jones played for the German senior national team in three friendlies, but was allowed to switch national team thanks to FIFA's new rule allowing players with dual citizenship to switch national teams after the age of 21. Jones' father is American.
What do you think of this news? Glad to see the process finally completed? Will you be waiting for the Jermaine Jones USA patch on FIFA 10? Anxious to see him in a U.S. national team uniform?
