Let's be honest. Soccer in the United States has come a long way, but that doesn't mean we're beneath using any tactic possible to convince players to join the US National Team.
With that in mind, it's time to petition Barack Obama and Sunil Gulati to do whatever it takes to get Gedion Zelalem to the US National Team. Does that mean we'll have to fast-track citizenship? So be it. Does that mean we'll have to grease a few palms to get a passport for Gedion? I'm sure we could find a few crooked congressmen. Is Gedion Zelalem even eligible for the US National Team? Who knows?
Let's break every rule and fully embrace as much governmental corruption as it takes to get Gedion Zelalem to the US National Team. The children are our future.
Americans for Gedion started this petition with a single signature, and now has 1,219 supporters. Start a petition today to change something you care about.
