So after seeing Giuseppe Rossi Murder his Homeland (USA) yesterday, I wonder if YOU know of any other american Born players that Chose to play for another country beside the U.S.A. I know of two.....


Giuseppe Rossi = Italy

(Cen Back) Neven Subotic = Serbia
Bosnias Finest2010-05-12 23:36:10 +0000 #2
^ neven subotic wasnt born in the U.S. he was born in bosnia but moved to U.S. at a young age and same goes with Vedad Ibisevic

Jermaine Jones, Guissepe Rossi, Vedad Ibisevic, and Neven Subotic in USA's starting 11 would automatically propel them to some of the elite national teams (the starters at least).

Jermaine Jones played a couple of times for Germany but now has the option to switch to USA according to the new rule passed by FIFA. This goes for all our Bosnian stars that left to play for other countries, they can come back as well.

If Rossi doesn't play for Italy in the next 3 years (I'm not sure if it's 3 years, correct me please if I'm wrong), he can switch to USA NT as long as he has the American passport. Same goes for Ibisevic, Subotic, and others. Jones already chose to switch.

Imagine the starting lineup:

Tim Howard (Everton)

Steven Cherundolo (Hannover)

Neven Subotic (Borussia Dortmund)

Oguchi Onyewu (Standard Liege)

Jonathan Spector (West Ham United)

Jermaine Jones (Schalke)

Michael Bradley (Borussia Monchengladbach)

Clint Dempsey (Fulham)

Landon Donovan (LA Galaxy)

Guiseppe Rossi (Villareal)

Vedad Ibisevic (Hoffenheim)
