Valencia’s 18-year-old midfielder, Yunus Musah, with eligibility for England, Ghana, Italy and the United States, has chosen to represent the USA in international competition, according to ussoccer.com.

The exciting talent is expected to join the US men’s national team for the upcoming friendlies against Jamaica and Northern Ireland during this month’s FIFA international window.

“I think it was pretty clear for me to decide to play for the United States. First of all, I think it makes sense to represent the country I was born in. The moment I decided to play for the United States came one day when my heart told me that this was the best place for me. The project that we have now and for the future is so exciting, and it’s a great pleasure to be able to be a part of that. I can’t wait to get started,” Musah said.
