Original post from Dave

Until he obtains a US passport and chooses to represent the USA I don't think many people will care.


I personally see value in a guy who came up through a MLS academy, spent a good part of his childhood here and at least wanted to rep the U.S. (it may be a Zelalem type situation without the happy ending) making it in England. If you don't, that's also fine.

Looks like the US eligibility for DPW is never going to happen. Article came out saying he's leaning towards playing for bermuda. Bermuda plays in the Caribbean Cup (Qualifying for Gold Cup) in June. Not sure if thats a cap tying event as its qualifying for the Gold Cup. If they lose (likely to happen) they wont have an official match until 2019 at the earliest so could have time to change his mind/get eligibility but he's probably more likely to play for England then USA at this point.

MSantoine, The Caribbean Cup is a cap tying event. If he is selected to the squad and plays than he will be tied to Bermuda. Considering the caliber of players available to Bermuda he will likely be a starter from the get go, so may as well close the book on the possibility of him representing the USA.

I hate to be the harbinger of bad news, ladies and gentlemen, but Michael Orozco will start for the US men's national team in Jacksonville.
