San Jose Earthquakes defender Steven Beitashour has explained committing himself to Iran.
The fullback had trained with the USA squad in the past.
"I'm hoping to play at a World Cup, and [next year's edition] is my best chance, because if I miss this one, I'll be 31 in another four years," Beitashour told MLSsoccer.com this week. "I'm just trying to make the most of it."
