So there are crazy rumors that New York and Portland are trying to get free agent Nigel Reo-Coker but they also say that Klinsmann is a fan of his and seeing as he's married to an American, he may be able to gain citizenship and play for the USA. Personally even if this were to happen (which I doubt) I don't know if he would be a good fit for the Nats. He's another DM and we have plenty of them now and plenty more young guys who could be better than him by the time he is eligible. Isn't it 3 years of living here (read that about Darlington Nagbe). So by then he'd be 31 and the next WC would be 2018 and he'd be 34. He may be a good signing if MLS gets him but I don't think he'll be anything more than that. Anyone else have any thoughts?

In fact seeing as he wasn't a citizen when he was capped for England's u-21 does that even mean he's allowed to play under current rules? I've heard not.

That's correct. He'll never be able to play for the United States

Alright just checking thanks.


The USMNT classic with Mexico was a tale of two halves, with the U.S. drawing 2-2 with Mexico.
