Yura Movsisyan Commits to Armenia

YURA

I know there are some out there who were hoping to see Yura Movsisyanin a U.S.A. kit at some point but now that he's down with Armenia I guessing you have a better chance of seeing him on USA Network. But Armenia can have him since he's wearing a shirt that he stole from Jersey Shore Ronnie's closet.

Even with FIFA's new ruling (the one that allowed Jermanine Jones & Edgar Castillo to play for the US), Yura will be "cap-tied" to Armenia if he starts or gets subbed in this friendly against Iran because he won't have US Citizenship at the time.

Not too heartbroken. Good player, but not the answer to our problems. I actually have respect for his decision, because the chances of Armenia going to the World Cup are slim to none. He must really feel passion for Armenia.

Perhaps he realized that by moving to Europe he pushed back his opportunity to actually gain US citizenship? The dude has his US green card, and if he plans on staying in Europe professionally for the near future, he's still looking at around 5 years to actually gain US citizenship. That would make him 28 by the time he's be eligible. Why wait that long?

He's talented. It is a loss for the US, especially if he ever learns how to pass when he draws three defenders with him.
