It looks like Lee Nguyen’s standout performance for the New England Revolution has caught the attention of U.S. Men’s National Team coach Jurgen Klinsmann.
Nguyen has been called up to the USMNT for its upcoming friendlies in Europe, according to Revs owner Jonathan Kraft, who revealed the news Sunday on a local radio show.
Nguyen has certainly done his best to add his name to the USMNT conversation — his 18 goals this season are the most by any American in MLS and he appears to be a frontrunner for league MVP this year.
If the Revs advance past the Columbus Crew on Sunday, the first leg of the Eastern Conference final will be on Nov. 23. The USMNT faces Colombia on Friday at Craven Cottage in London and then Ireland on Nov. 18 at Aviva Stadium in Dublin.
Nguyen has three caps with the senior USMNT, all in 2007 under former U.S. coach Bob Bradley.
The full roster for the upcoming USMNT friendlies is expected to be announced Monday.
What do you think of this call-up? Think Nguyen can make an impact with the national team?
