And Ghana gets drawn into Group A.

Safe to say that if we really want to be considered a top tier country then we have to go out and play well in these types of groups. The US team has talent. I think they derfinitely have a punchers chance to get out of this group. Should be a very entertaining group to watch. If you are a soccer purist then Group A is your group to watch.

For me the U-20 level is about who makes the least mistakes.

Tab Ramos - Please call up Bryan Salazar - There is nobody in the US Talent pool with that skill set

His mom is Honduran. Salazar was born and raised in Houston, TX.

People are freaking out because "his mom" said that she would like to see him play for Honduras. Literally this statement form her came out a few days after Honduras beat the US in WC qualifying.

Salazar has stated nothing about which country he would play for.

And why would he. He is 18, has talent, and quite frankly I would be astonished if he played for Honduras anytime soon. The US is the better national team program.

Will Ramos call him into the April camp? It's a strong possibility.

Actually there are quite a few players in the U-20 program that have Salazar's skill set. i.e. Cuevas, Rodriguez, Green, Pfeffer to name a few. But yes Salazar has talent.

No man - this would be a disrespectful slap in the face if he plays for honduras. Especially if he turns out to be legit. It would be worse than guiseppi rossi

*born in the USA
* signed into Dynamo academy at 14 (i think)
* sign a pro contract by dynamo

Honduras has done nothing for this kid regarding: soccer, education, or way of life. This is the whole point of homegrown players. Developing our own !!! MLS and academies werent around with our current dual national players.

Lol worse than Rossi? Doubtful. Salazar might be be US/Colombian/Honduran eligible, but he was raised Catracho. Much like our Mexican-American dual nationals, his mother took him to see the Honduran national team play whenever they were relatively close in the US, and she has stated to the Honduran press that she wants him to play for La Bicolor.

We need to let Bryan focus on excelling with the Dynamo right now before he makes a determination regarding his international future, because if he doesn't handle business on the club level, he might not have an international future period.

Like i said, honduras did nothing for his development. Bet you his mother wouldnt move back to honduras !

His international future could be in 2 months for the US U-20 WC

I am with Blaise on this one. The kid is clearly good enough to merit a look on the U-20 squad. I would take him over Mario Rodriguez at right wing with Cuevas on the Left and Villareal at CF. I know there are some other talented attackers too, but Salazar is good enough to at least get a look, dual national or not.

Nah I'm not Honduran, I am literate though. You're right about Honduras not doing anything for his development. But did Mexico do anything for Ricardo Sanchez before calling him up as U17 keeper for their WC winning side? Nope. Did Mexico do anything for Uvaldo Luna before poaching him from the US when he signed in Mexico? Nope. The list goes on... (Castillo, Corona, etc.)

Point being that these kids love America and they love living here but they had Mexican jerseys and scarves hanging over their cribs and likewise, Bryan was raised to love his Honduran roots. Tough decision either way but just because they haven't done anything for his development that shouldn't eliminate them from contention (as much as it pains me to say it).

I want him with the US but we have to be realistic. And like I said, with the talent coming up in Honduras, if he doesn't focus on his club development then there's a chance he won't be good enough for either nation.

Didnt expect his mom to look like that, WOW

The fact that these kinds of articles are showing up " what his mom wants" shows how desperate Honduras is.

I hope Honduras doesnt even make the World Cup

Im just riding high on this kid because he's got something special.
