That's awesome :) I had mentioned his name when talking about possible call-ups with a friend, but I didn't think it was likely...so I'm happy to be wrong! Congrats to Omar! USMNT could definitely use a steady and towering center back :)

Congrats to Omar for that chance and distinction. Hope he gets plenty of training in camp. Moreover, he does very well in camp and in the friendly coming up, if he plays in it.

I was thinking about him being called up to the USMNT camp, it's about time, we need him with Gooch being injured. Contrats Omar!
