Frosinone wasn't promoted. Novakovich is going to be sitting in Serie B for another season...

In 38 games for Frosinone, Novakovich scored only 5 times. Serie B is a weaker league than MLS...

Hate to point out the obvious here... but thats not gonna cut it. The guy has to do better in order to get called into the national team. Especially when there are multiple forwards in MLS (which is stronger than Serie B) who are scoring more goals.


He showed he can play at the Eresdivisie level.

Frosinone only scored 41 goals on the year, to put his 5 in context. Led the team in assists.

There is no argument to be made that he shouldn't be called into a camp given the current options at forward.

What a blow...really thought it was his time to shine...this really puts a dent in his USMNT hopes. Gregg will call any MLS guy up before Nova now, just bc he's in the second tier.

I would love to see him get another call. I think he only got called up the one time and only played like 20 min. We need to give him a better look than that.
