Got capped by the under 20s for germany and scored a goal... Got player of the game... Tab ramos should pursue him, klissmann recently spoke to him about joining the mnt.. seems like parker is more comfortable with the german team... Wel see what happens..

Well, it's easier to win German-Americans like Brooks when the US is the first to call them up. It's harder when Germany asks first.

I mean, it's only natural when a player born and raised in Germany and brought up in their system wants to play for Germany.

US isn't going to win them all but they have done remarkably well with the ones they've gotten

Parker scores for manz today... Looked pretty good almost had a second... Hopefully he chooses the usa over germany.. if he keeps playing at a high level germany might wanna try to cap him.. klissman is high on this kid..

My guess is he will stay with Germany until they no longer want him. Still will be tough for him to break into the German side, but I really have no clue how good this kid is or can be.

Germany firmly has their hooks set in on Parker. Don't expect him to make a switch anytime soon if ever.

He's pretty sweet though ain't he?! Loved watching him. Great confidence. Btw, it's Shaun, not Shawn. Minor detail.

Shawn has a ton of talent but he just picked up his 2nd red card in only his 7th Bundesliga game

Anything to take him off Germany's radar is good for us. As well as his two younger brothers.

High kick to our very own Parkhurst in his first BL cap; destinies collide.

There will be US scouts at the Mainz game tomorrow. Shawn Parker is the only player for both teams that has American ties.

Still think Parker will be a hard get. I have heard that Klinsmann has been in touch with him previously, and Parker has stated that he would like to stay in the German setup. Parker is very much in line to be apart of the next cycle of the German U-21's.

But, you never know he may have change of heart the next 7 months.

If US scouts are going to scout him then its possible he is having a change of heart. But I still wouldn't get your hopes to much. He still has to file a one-time switch to play for the US, so I would presume that a November call-up if it were to happen would only be for him to come in and train, and that's all.
