FIFA has finally gotten around to approving German-American (or should that be American-German?) Jermaine Jones' switch to the US National Team.
Jones, a member of FC Schalke in Germany's top flight, is still attempting to return from a lower leg injury that has sidelined him for the entirety of the German Bundesliga season.
Jones' return to the field, and subsequent call up by Bob Bradley (who under no pressure to do so quickly considering that Jones cannot switch back to Germany) will give the Americans another center midfield option to go along with the glut of players at that position.
I'll attempt to keep a close eye on Jones' injury progress.
