Johannsson announced on July 29 that he wanted to pledge his future to the USMNT over Iceland, the nation where he grew up after spending the first two years of his life in Alabama. On Monday, the AZ Alkmaar forward was included in the USMNT roster, and now he’s officially eligible to play for the squad going forward.
