    Hopefully, he scores the goals so we can see if he "maybe" gets called

    He scored his second goal for Gent to day in a 4-1 win over Lokeren in the Cup.

    It's still in development, but it may end up looking something like:

    1) American-born and raised by two parents who were American-born and raised
    2) Guys who improve the MNT at a position of need
    3) Everyone else

    Is he better than Rubio Rubin or Zardes? If so, he should be in the gold cup conversation.

    Saief is telling Israeli media he prefers a callup by Israel to that of the USMNT.

    I think we have a textbook case of telling different stories depending on which media he is speaking to.

    Saying no to Jürgen Klinsmann might play out differently in practice than in theory for him, if he can score some goals and earn that call.

    Quick poll for those who have seen him play...

    Is he good enough right now to play on the USMNT?

    I imagine this is a rather short list.

    And a question that could use refinement. Do you mean "good enough to warrant a camp callup at the beginning of a new four-year cycle and, perhaps, the U23 team" or "one of the best strikers we have in the entire program today" or something else?

    If he joined our program, he would be the second best striker on our Olympic team after Rubio Rubin. But he seems committed to israel. With the euros expanding to 24 teams, Israel has a shot to make those in 2016.

    After Rubin isn't this guy are current best u23 forward? Or is he already cap tied at that level?

    I think that goal is from the 1:4 cup win over Lokeren on 12/17/14, see 4:32 & post #81 above-


    The goal from 1/25 vs. KV Oostende is at 1:10-

    I wouldn't get my hopes up for him playing for the United States

    Now wait a minute............ Does his Mom not have input??? ;)

    All kidding aside that's some heavy shit right there. It's hard to go back on a promise made to a dying parent -- or anyone for that matter. If Israel is the route he goes my hat goes off to him. It will be that much more special for Kenny. Placing myself in his shoes, it kinda gives me goose bumps just thinking about standing there in your national team kit, national anthem playing, knowing you fulfilled a promise.
