Peter Vermes feels Sporting Kansas City playmaker Graham Zusi could soon be called up by the USA national team.
The SKC boss has been pleasantly surprised by the improvement the 25-year old has made in midfield over the past year and is backing him to at least be looked at by Juergen Klinsmann and his US coaching staff.
"For him not to get a look say, this upcoming January, I'd personally be very surprised," Vermes said.
"He's got something different is that he's an American guy who is extremely crafty as a playmaker going forward.
"Whether it's dribbling by a guy or slipping a final pass to a teammate, he does it pretty regularly."
