Joe Nagbe Junior to play for USA National team

 

The dynamic midfielder's club manager says the national team boss has been in touch with him about a potential call-up.

United States manager Jurgen Klinsmann appears to be ready to add another player to the U.S. men's national team pool.
Darlington Nagbe, the Portland Timbers midfielder who got his U.S. citizenship in September, is set for a call-up from Klinsmann, according to his club coach Caleb Porter. The Timbers manager indicated that, while Nagbe became a citizen last month, there is still a waiting period for FIFA to grant the player clearance to suit up for his new country.

"No, I’ve talked to Jurgen. He likes him," Porter told ExtraTime Radio. "He’s very interested in bringing him in. He hasn’t been cleared yet, completely, through FIFA. Obviously he has his citizenship, but it takes some time, it takes six weeks or so for it to get processed and sorted out.

"Actually, funny enough, I just got an email from Jurgen this morning because he was checking in to find out where Nagbe’s status was. It looks like he would be available for the November FIFA window, so hopefully he’ll get a chance to go in then."

The 25-year-old Nagbe was born in Liberia but moved to Ohio shortly after.
