It’s pretty common to see US national team coach Jurgen Klinsmann tweeting about his players’ latest highlights.
But over the weekend, Klinsmann heaped praise on a player he normally doesn’t tweet about:
Many US national team fans were probably thinking, “Who?”
Fabrice "Fafà" Picault is one of the more intriguing USMNT-eligible players in Europe at the moment. A 25-year-old winger who holds both US and Haitian citizenship, Picault was born in Manhattan and plays in the 2.Bundesliga for FC St Pauli.
His three goals in 12 appearances this season may not be making headlines like Bobby Wood’s stint in Germany’s second-tier league, but Klinsmann is clearly watching.
The former Tampa Bay Rowdies and Fort Lauderdale Strikers prospect has yet to be capped for the US national team, but if Klinsmann’s tweets are any indication, Picault may still get his chance someday.
