Watson Suggests Tommy Thompson Might Not Join Up With The National Team After All

Tommy Thompson might not want to pack his bags for Argentina just yet.

The San Jose Earthquakes attacker was recently called up to the under-20 national team. However, following the club’s 1-1 draw against Real Salt Lake on Saturday night, head coach Mark Watson explained that those plans haven’t been finalized. When asked if he was disappointed that the team would be losing the 19-year-old for upcoming games against the Portland Timbers and Vancouver Whitecaps, Watson replied:

“We are?”

“I know he’s been called in, but we’ve been speaking to the US Federation.”

“We’d like to have him here.”
