    Great find. He's 26, however, and will turn 27 in October. I'm sure he'll receive a phone call from Jurgen as soon as a member of US Soccer scouting logs on to BigSoccer. :D

    I'm thinking of a sentence that starts with "Cap" and ends with "now!"

    Beat germany, the less obvious German-Americans come out of the woodwork.

    I have one. I like it a lot. I think he would like having one, too.

    I mean...I'm down if he's down?

    Edit - I've never seen him play - but I watched 3 10 second videos of skill...

    CAP HIM NOW!

    But he'd qualify for one, right?

    Assuming his mother lived the requisite time in the country to pass on her citizenship, yes.

    First Sirigu sighting of the season - he's on the bench for a DFB Pokal game against Hannover.

    Reminder about him (+ a goal in BL play):

    http://americansoccernow.com/articles/wood-williams-yedlin-amp-arjo-all-tally-in-euro-action

    The game was scoreless in the 90th minute when Darmstadt right back Sandro Sirigu scored with what appeared to be a mishit cross.

    On an interesting note, the man who scored the winner has American ties. Sirigu, 27, was born to an American mother although his agent informed American Soccer Now that he has never applied for an American passport. His agent also informed ASN that he has never been in contact with U.S. Soccer although he would explore his American passport options if asked.


    The goal sequence at about 3:40

    And Darmstadt lose 6-0 to Dortmund. Looking like prime relegation candidates this year, though obviously results like this won't be the ones to seal their fate.

    Sirigu has kept his place at right midfield, going the distance in today's 1-0 home loss to Bayern Munich.
