Could FC Cincinnati striker Brandon Vazquez play for USA?

It didn’t take long for the Brandon Vazquez’s name to enter the conversation for a US men’s national team call-up.

The idea of ​​Vazquez’s possible future inclusion in the USMNT was introduced about an hour after the conclusion of Saturday’s 3-1 win against Inter Miami CF. Vazquez had practically just stepped off the field after delivering two goals and an assist. He also drew a penalty kick.

While some likely scoffed at the notion of Vazquez being included in the USMNT today, the spirit of the conversation that ensued post-match was to acknowledge the 23-year-old’s hot start to 2022 and his potential to continue delivering.

“His upside, his potential is massive,” FC Cincinnati head coach and former USMNT player Pat Noonan said. “You can see that with his last two performances. Not just with the goals, but his ability to hold the ball, his ability to work defensively for our team. He does a lot of little things to help the group have success. In the end, as a striker, you have to finish plays off. And he’s doing that right now. His overall performances for the group are what’s helping us to have success and win games.
