FOX Sports’ Stuart Holden reported on Monday that Gonzalez, 22, has filed his one-time switch paperwork with FIFA to change his national team eligibility from Mexico to the US.
Gonzalez was named last week to the US’s 40-man preliminary roster for this summer’s CONCACAF Gold Cup. A dual citizen, he has represented Mexico at several youth levels, making it necessary for him to file a one-time switch with FIFA in order to play for the US. Once the switch becomes official, Gonzalez will be tied to the US for the rest of his career.
A product of the FC Dallas academy, Gonzalez – who recently appeared to commit to Mexico – has five shutouts and just nine goals allowed in 11 MLS appearances this year.
