Andrew Wooten called into USMNT camp for Costa Rica clash Tuesday



No matter the result in the CONCACAF Cup Saturday, the U.S. Men’s National Team is expected to see some changes before their next clash with Costa Rica.

One of those changes is Andrew Wooten.

SV Sandhausen announced Friday that its star forward had been called into camp by U.S. head coach Jurgen Klinsmann for the team’s game Costa Rica Tuesday in Harrison, New Jersey. Wooten currently has six goals in the second tier of Germany, tied for third among all players.

The 26-year-old forward has yet to make an appearance for the senior national team, although he did receive his first-ever call-up ahead of the USMNT’s friendly match against Peru in September.

What do you think of Wooten’s call-up? Think he will start against Costa Rica? Expect any other additions by the USMNT?

  1. Since the club team is announcing this, he might not be the only one, this suggests we might go experience for Mex. but then release some people and bring in some newer players for CR.

  2. I live in São Paulo and my Brazilian wife is pregnant, no pre-nup but I told her my one condition was any progeny would play for the USMNT. Give it another 18 years or so.

  3. The number of Germericans of soccer playing age is going to start dropping. Starting in the mid-90s the number of US troops in Germany decreased significantly. It’s now about 1/8 the level it was at when the Berlin Wall fell.

    • Or, we could learn how to ID, train and develop soccer players! I know that’s crazy talk but sloppy seconds get old after a while.

      • Well that is what JK is suppose to be doing as Tech Director and even before that when he was given control of all the male nationals teams. Four years in and who do we have who was domestically developed to replace Donovan, Dempsey, Boca, or Bradley? There is no way they aren’t out there because the clubs that developed them are all still in business. It is just that JK prefers German and euro developed players. He gives them the valuable caps that will help their development rather than giving them to more US developed players
