U.S. Soccer confirmed Thursday that midfielder Kenny Saief has been approved by FIFA for a change of association.
Born in Panama City, Fla., Saief represented Israel in official competition for their U-19 and U-21 National Teams, which required his application for a one-time switch. With his request granted, he can now only represent the United States at the international level.
A member of Belgian club Gent, Saief was named to the USA's 40-player provisional roster for this summer’s CONCACAF Gold Cup. The final roster of 23 players will be announced June 25 on FOX.
