Sergino Dest said that the Dutch called him in to their U-23 team. When asked if he would commit himself to the US in a game that would cap tie him, he said he can't answer that.

If he continues to get regular PT for Ajax and excels, he's going Dutch.

Makes no sense. Why would he want to pay for everything himself?

Maybe, personally I think he would be making a mistake but it would be hard to ignore a callup to their full team. What he should be realisitic about, is we have shown we want him to play for us for a long time, and we want him to lock down a starting spot.
I just dont get the mindset of playing for a countrys youth teams for years, only to swap to another country that finally decides they want you.

The youth teams have shown they want him, but the full team hasn't. One of the current issues is that it seems like the youth teams are too disconnected from the full team. There are a lot of young players that Ramos clearly rates and brings in whenever he can but haven't heard anything from Berhalter.



He was surprised because, up until that point, he hadn't heard much from Berhalter. Sciaretta (and others) have reported that too often the youth players don't hear from Berhalter as they are progressing until he's ready to call them into a camp.

at the same time, if you are being constantly called into ever youth camp, that IS attention right there

Sure but if other full national team managers have been sending you a text congratulating you for your U-20 WC performance or talking to your parents, your head is going to be turned. Word is that Berhalter often doesn't do things like that with US youth national team members. Dest's surprise at hearing from him is indicative of that.

We need to hire college footbsll coach as our "recruiter" of duel internationals.

They know how to play that game.

Was he surprised that Bertsmoker reached out to him or surprised he was called up to the USMNT?

It's a little ambiguous there.

We are going to get first shot at Dest, IMO he would really have to put us off for a decent period before the Netherlands with all of their defensive talent would be willing to try and cap tie him.

Will this cap tie him?

No. It has to be an official competition for FIFA/CONCACAF. Tomorrow is just a friendly so it counts as nothing. It is all going to come down to next month against Cuba/Canada.

Honestly it sounds like the Dutch will probably offer him a spot next month during the international break and I won't be surprised if he takes it. He was born there and has spent his entire life there, including playing for Ajax since 2012.

Hope he chooses the USA, but I'll be surprised if the Dutch do reach out to him

I don't think it's on the head coach to do it, but definitely we should have someone on the staff that is at the least passing on communication from Gregg to the player pool.
I would also wonder, if I was a dual national, which team wanted me to play for their youth teams. I would feel insulted that they only asked for me now.

Regarding the whole build from the back discussion, I would like to see the pace of play picked. Everything is way to deliberate and slow to develop, it makes it so easy for the defense. Whether we change tactics or not, the pace is too slow.

Throw buckets of cash at Norwhich coach. They beat city without bunkering. Tactics, heart and confidence. Just amazing.

This is probably the biggest issue with what we're doing but GB should've fixed it. There's also time you just have to slam it upfield but he doesn't seem to be telling them to do that.

The fact that after the Mexico game he said they played fine was a crock and he needs to pick his head out his ass.
