Sacha Kljestan is making a real good case for why he should be included on the U.S. Men’s National Team in October.
Kljestan continued his impressive form to the start of RSC Anderlecht’s season by scoring the second goal in their 5-0 mauling of KV Mechelen on Saturday. Kljestan found the back of the net in the 18th minute when a shot from a teammate stung off the post before falling to him a few yards in front of net.
The veteran midfielder now has four goals in Pro League play (five across all competitions) and is only two behind the top scorer, Tunisian striker Hamdi Harbaoui.
Kljestan was not called up by U.S. head coach Jurgen Klinsmann during the last round of World Cup qualifying, but could be selected for next month’s qualifiers vs. Jamaica and Panama if he continues to impress.
Here is the goal (at the 0:23 mark):
What do you think of Kljestan scoring again? Hoping to see him on the U.S. Men’s National Team roster in October?
