A dual Mexican-American international goalkeeper is apparently going to switch sides come January.
According to Goal USA, FC Dallas goalkeeper Jesse Gonzalez will join the U.S. Men’s National Team during its annual January camp.
Gonzalez, 20, most recently played for Mexico’s Under-20 team during the U-20 World Cup. He started two of the team’s three games. He will not be able to play for the U.S. until he files an official one-time switch with FIFA.
The 6-foot-4 netminder soared onto the scene towards the end of the MLS regular season, starting in the club’s final 11 matches while also playing in all four FC Dallas playoff games.
U.S. head coach Jurgen Klinsmann previously stated that next month’s camp will feature regular senior team members as well as U.S. U-23 players in order to prepare each level for important 2016 contests. The U.S. will play Iceland on Jan. 31 and Canada on Feb. 5.
What do you think of this development? See Gonzalez getting a start in either game?
