A good month of August just got even better for Andrew Wooten.

According to German newspaper Bild, head coach Jurgen Klinsmann has called in the red-hot striker to be a part of the U.S. Men’s National Team that will take on Peru and Brazil in September friendlies.

Wooten has scored five goals in three matches for SV Sandhausen in the second tier of the German Bundesliga thus far, most recently scoring a brace against Paderborn on Aug. 14.

The 25-year-old goalscorer has previously been called into the U.S. Under-23 National Team squad, but has yet to make an appearance for the U-23s or the senior team. As such, the German-American is not cap-tied to the U.S.

The USMNT will first play Peru on Sept. 4 at RFK Stadium before meeting Brazil on Sept. 8 at Gillette Stadium.

What do you think about Wooten’s call-up? Think Klinsmann will feature the forward in either game? Or both?
