The United States' goalkeeping depth chart just added another player as Stefan Frei announced on Tuesday that he passed his test to gain US citizenship.
The Seattle Sounders goalkeeper, who represented Switzerland at youth level, is now waiting for approval from FIFA for his switch to play for the US national team.
"Thank you all for the love and support! I'm proud to finally be an American and will do everything to make my fellow citizens proud," said Frei on his Twitter page.
The 31-year-old moved to the United States when he a teenager, playing at the University of California, Berkeley. He would then make the move to Major League Soccer where he was drafted by Toronto FC before moving on to the Sounders.
Frei was one of the invitees to the US national team's January camp prior to obtaining his citizenship.
