Anthony Brooks went the full 90 minutes and scored a goal in Hertha Berlin’s 6-1 season-opening win over Eintracht Frankfurt. Here is his goal.
Starting CB at the 2014 World Cup or wait for 4-8 years to try and crack the German squad????
Tough decisions ahead for JA.
That’s not a tough decision. 3 world cups, adored by an entire fan base, and still chances at national team glory–or possibly starting for Germany in 4-6 years, maybe playing in a world cup, facing the media scrutiny only big nations like England/Germany/Italy can provide?
For us it is an easy call…
For a kid that grew up in Germany it probably isn’t.
I really miss the guy that did the everytouch videos.
what William said,
this isnt a decision about what is easier or what will make you more famous. representing a nation internationally is a big deal. You don’t want to just do what’s best for you, you want to do what’s best for your country.
of course some players do only want what’s best for them individually *cough*timmy*cough*
So the question becomes, which country is yours?
Daniil–I think most people who are dual nationals (admittedly I don’t know Brooks’ whole story) have loyalty to both nations and want to see both do well. So while the heart may play a role, I’d guess the head is what actually makes the decision.
Still don’t want to jinx this. Long season but was that the youngest USA player to ever score in the Bundesliga? Bundesliga debut?
