It may not come as a surprise, but Gedion Zelalem will likely be named to the U.S. Under-23 Men’s National Team roster that takes on Colombia at the end of March.
According to Scottish national newspaper The Scotsman, the 19-year-old midfielder is set to be called up by the U.S. for their Olympic qualifying playoff series vs. Colombia.
The Americans will head to Barranquilla, Colombia, for the first leg of the series on March 25 before playing the second leg at Toyota Stadium four days later.
Zelalem appeared in two games for the U.S. U-23s during the 2015 CONCACAF Men’s Olympic Qualifying Championship, where the Americans finished in third place. Currently on loan with Rangers FC, Zelalem has played in 16 games for the club during the 2015-16 season, starting in 12 of those league fixtures.
What do you think of Zelalem’s reported call-up? Think he should start vs. Colombia?
