    Nice run down. Yet, with all this talent coming from this side of the pond is there an increase in interest in Concacaf football in England or for that matter in Europe. My impression would be no. For instance is the US v. Mexico game going to draw a large TV audience in Europe. It’s being played at a good time for them, certainly not the American audience.

    I wonder if they’ll borrow this little chant…

    When your sitting in row Z
    and the ball hits your head
    that’s Zamora…

    So the two changed National Teams because of the new FIFA Rule ?..

      Its not a new rule, but if you don’t get capped at the senior level, and prove linage you can declare for nation. Just like Rossi was capped at the junior level for the USA, but declared for Italy’s senior team.
