According to a tweet from Doug McIntyre of ESPN, Vancouver Whitecaps striker Kekuta Manneh is about to gain some invaluable experience. McIntyre was at a press conference featuring new US Mens National Team Coach Bruce Arena, and says Manneh has grabbed the attention of the new skipper.
Arena: “We’re also going to bring Kekuta Manneh into January camp.”— Doug McIntyre (@DougMacESPN) December 16, 2016
The Gambia-born forward plays for the Vancouver Whitecaps.
Manneh has long been working towards getting his eligibility to play for the Americans, and will no doubt be delighted by the news. Fans should be excited too; A camp with the USMNT would do wonders for Manneh’s experience, and confidence.
