haha:
-as if Zelalem is just about ready to play important USNT matches, at any position. He's years away, and he's a maybe. No left foot, bad decisions on pass v dribble all day long, no physical side.
-you're in quite a run of form on this site over the last few weeks. Try not to kill any Mexicans, ok? I hear they're humans too.... just a rumor, but you never know.

Yoou have never seen Zelalem play in those Summer friendlies for Arsenal then. He is at this level. Remember he is playing with kids who are not at the same technical and tactical level as you. No diss to the MLS players but none of those players are Ozil, Wilshere, Cazorla, Giroud, Ox-Chamberlain, Alexis, etc...quality. Dude can pick a pass if he has players who can run the channels and make timely runs. You will see. You are right about him not having the physical side to play heavy minutes at this level though.

I only meant that as a 'counting chickens before they hatch' thing. He'll decide "don't pass" when he should, and partly because it's a left foot pass. That could go away in a year, easily, or maybe it's already gone when he plays in lower-level games.

We also saw him at the u20 world cup still raw and physical play does kills his game he can fix that but till then. Obviously his decision making needs some work too again that comes with experience but to play international level now not ready
