Well, at least you can most possible take out India out of running considering the quality of India team plus India does not allow dual citizenship.

Not sure how long he has been in Spain but by age 16 he could gain his citizenship. Doubt he will play for Spain since they already have several players as or more talented than him at his age across Spain. was doing some research and Madrid is not even a top 5 development academy in Spain. La masia is #1. Same goes for lederman he will get spainish citizenship soon. Messi was called by Spain youth national teams but he declined even tho he was there at a very early age.


We have no idea if there are kids just as talented or more talented than Pynadath in his age group. And yes Madrids Academy has never been the best at development, but that is changing. Madrid is trying to follow more of a Barca strategy going forward. And it's Real Madrid. Jese and Morata are both recent Real Madrid academy products.

Lets just be glad that we have kids like Lederman and Pynadath playing abroad in famed youth academies. Both players will have a huge role in the next U-17 cycle.

La Fabrica has produced amazing players. Arbeloa, Diego Lopez, Cambiasso, Casillas, Javi Garcia, Mata, Guti, Soldado, Eto'o...having an American play at such a great academy is very exciting. At the same time, he's so young though that he's not hypeworthy yet. But this adds to the growing list of elite youth academies with American players, including La Masia, Boca Juniors, Estudiantes, Dortmund, and Cruzeiro. I bet that at least one of these players ends up suiting up for the USNT.

True, fwiw, he went to Mardrid as Ronaldo was his idol.
