Meet new dual national striker Jordan Siebatcheu:

Born in DC
Dual national US and France
19 years old
6'3"
Plays for Stade Reims in Ligue 1 and currently has 3 goals on the season.

Recently did an interview with Futu21 in France stating that he is a US citizen and very much wants to play for the US.

Uhm, Klinsi lets get on this. This kid looks to have talent galore.

Good find! Damn I was hoping he was a creative MF or Winger

I'd like to see a bunch of new faces for the November friendlies!

It would be a nightmare for opposing teams to see him at 6'3 and Bjorn Johnsen 6'5 up top

We don't have November friendlies. WCQ starts in November. If this kid continues to play well then I could see Klinsy bringing him in November just to get an extended look at him even if the kid doesn't see the field for the WCQ.

Lol, we could have a future strike force of Jordan/Jordan.

How has he not been talked about before? Where was he for the U20 cycle? Where is he for the U23s? Scoring goals in Ligue 1 is no small feat, especially at 19. How has he not been discussed before? Does he have eligibility issues? If he was born in DC then I dont see how. Is he holding out for France?

He was the one that brought it up. So he could be trying to get France to notice.

He has lived most of his life in France, so USSF didn't know about him.

Who knows what his intentions exactly are, but that is for Klinsmann and staff to find out.

Just about to say what you said. He could've been on the U-20 team as well as this current U-23 Olympic team

I'm all for searching High & Low for potential players for the US. Let them fight it out for who makes the 23 man squad. However, I see no reason to rush a 19 yr old right into the US Sr. Team unless we do not qualify for the Olympics.
If we beat Honduras tomorrow and qualify for the Olympics than there should be a couple of U-23 camps where he could be brought in and evaluated against his piers (Morris, Kiesewetter, Tall, Rubin, etc...). to determine if/where he fits into the US Player Pool.

Leading into an Olympic year their is no reason why we should be rushing these really young guys into the full national team without at least testing them out in a youth team.
If he's good enough he could join the Olympic Team to gain international experience. Then after the Olympics (if warranted) he can begin to be integrated into the full National Team.

Every player isn't evaluated the same. One 19 year old may be good enough for the Senior team another one may need more time with the youth teams.

He is scoring goals in Ligue 1 which means he obviously has talent for s potential senior team callup. I leave to the coaching staff to determine who they think is ready.

If the U23's qualify for the Olympics then they will have until next summer. I gaurantee we will see some of those players get time with the senior side the next 10 months before the Olympics. Just like other Olympic teams will have players who have seen time with their senior team. Look at Mexicos winning Olympic team a lot of those players were full senior team players. Look at Brazil's last Olympic team a lot of those players were full national team players.

@Dave

I have to disagree with you. A lot of the current USMNT players skill level is 1.0. They are not creative, can't play one touch passing, and have no 1 vs 1 skills.

The new crop of players take on people 1vs 1 and have more creativity. I'm all for integrating this kid sooner than later.

Both clips really don't show that much about the kid besides big decent pace and has a bit of knowledge on position. Good movement on the psg goal. Always welcome another striker to the crop. But I'm more excited about maki tall at the moment. Let's see if this kid can keep producing.

I am excited about a lot of the young talent. I think the next few years is going to be a turning point in exciting young talent. It will be in the coaches to integrate said talent.

Oh and to put his goal tally into perspective: he is only three goals off from Edison Cavani who is Ligue 1's top scorer with 6 goals.
