    Re: ***Official USMNT Thread***

    The US used to bleed soccer talent, particularly Italian-Americans to Italy. It's nice to see that trend reversing.

    I think the first professional competition for Zelalem will probably be the Rio Olympics. He'll probably play in some friendlies as well like Green before hand.

    There's alot of kids in academies in Europe right now, I think Juventus signed an 18 or 19 year old from Sporting KC's Academy system.

    Erik Palmer-Brown, Juve tried to buy him for >$1,000,000 (for a 16 year old) and SKC turned them down, kids another local product like Besler and Zusi

    Yeah he's supposed to be a pretty big deal. I'm sure he'll be getting some minutes in a couple years, it's nice that they have a solid enough squad they aren't forcing him into the big leagues before he's ready, though (See: Adu, Freddy).

    And Zusi isn't a local product, he's from Orlando, he just got got drafted by KC.

    I know this is off topic, but is anyone going to any of the International Champions Cup games this summer? Pretty nice slate of games. Hope they keep this every year.

    I'll be at Liverpool vs. Olympiacos @ Soldier Field in July. Should be a great time! I will be interested to see what level of talent will be playing for Liverpool as that is the team I support. The world cup will have just ended a few weeks prior so the top players will probably not be showing up, but there should be a good collection of young players to watch.


    ALL IN

    Yeah, my team is not represented in this year's collection, for good reason (relegation), but am glad to see a Greek League team in there with some top flight English and Italian clubs. Good for U.S. soccer to see these clubs come regularly.
