RE: Sapong to the Union
CJ Sapong has been called into the US camp for the game against Portugal. Many young players brought in and most of the recent stars left at home. Maybe a chance for him to make his mark and get more chances with the national team.

Great news. Other than Pulisic, the entire program needs an enema. Good to see.

Good luck to CJ.

He should have gotten an opportunity sooner but I hope he takes this chance to make a strong impression! Go CJ!

Hopefully - and I stress "hopefully" - some of these U17's and U20's who performed well in 2017 on big stages (qualifying and then FIFA World Cup) will be given a legit shot during this next 4+ year cycle. Though I (DCU fan) hated losing Bill Hamid to his Euro-wish-journey, I am glad to see him with the USMNT and hope he gets a legit shot over the coming year(s).

Sapong replaced in the 76th minute of a 1-1 tie with Portugal in the international friendly. Overall he played well but wasn’t able to score.

He had an early chance forcing a save and he was credited with an assist on McKennie's goal. Not bad for CJ! US should have won as the Portugal goal came on a misplay by our keeper...

He got a lot of kudos from the coaches and media for his performance.
