Maund Approved For US by FIFA

 Maund Approved For US by FIFA

Aaron Maund is a versatile player whose freshman season at Notre Dame was outstanding. The Massachusetts native represented Trinidad and Tobago in the U-17 World Cup in 2007, but has opted to switch his national team to the US, and his request was approved by FIFA.

Maund is a versatile player who can play comfortably with either foot and shift inside on the backline if needed. He also can play as a holding midfielder which has become an in demand position for US pool players under Bob Bradley.

Maund is training with Thomas Rongen’s US U-20 team in Bradenton in anticipation of the CONCACAF U-20 Championship which begins next week in Trinidad. The US opens with Jamaica on Friday.

    Well joining the US Men is a plus, maybe I’ll forgive the ND association.

    He should be pretty solid in qualifying.
