Former US Youth National Team defender Neven Subotic is days away from receiving German citizenship.

The Borussia Dortmund man, who has been the subject of speculation about his international future since being dropped from the US U-20 team by Manager Thomas Rongen in 2006, could be eligible to play for up to five countries.

Subotic reportedly has refused a call up to the full US National Team despite being a product of US Soccer's Bradenton Youth Academy and appearing almost 15 times for the various US Youth National Teams.

Subotic is eligible by birth to play for Bosnia, by ethnicity to play for Croatia and Serbia and also soon by citizenship to play for Germany. His caps at the youth national team level for US are non binding before he turns 21 on the full international level. Subotic is currently 19.
