No said DA isn't working because of dual nationals, but that it's a sign that DA isn't working. Granted JK isn't the world's sharpest tack, but he was frustrated by level of talent here in the US. DA has been around for ten years but he shopped abroad. Maybe it's a European bias, but clearly college coaches feel similarly.

USMNT have always had dual nationals. Before, during and after Klinsmanm. Spain and Germany also have dual nationals.

If you read TH's full interview he said there are US players that also lacked enthusiasm, not just dual national players. In fact he said a few were outstanding. TH doesn't understand it because by his accounts he lived and breathed the national team. He certainly did his job getting out there and pitching it often, even supporting the women's team as well. Not sure JK inspired loads of enthusiasm.

I read the full interview and his follow up interview where he qualified his statement to include other players. In fact I posted the original link

I was merely noting that dual nationals aren't specific to American soccer. Germany and Spain has relied on dual national. Klose, Podolski and Costa are all dual nationals.

I prefer Jermaine Jones perspective that's it's not about nationality but rather heart.

None the less, I'll be there.

Good for you! I hope you witness a great game and three points for the US

As far as I know most of the recent US qualifiers have been in soccer specific MLS stadiums. The distribution plan while harsh does minimizes opposition fans. It gives the US a real home field advantage
