Jordan Seabatche, 24, a former member of the Washington-born French Espoire, celebrated his first two elections with the United States. The Stryker, who borrowed from Rennes to Bern, shows his pride and easy integration with a group of youngsters who have followed his course well.
Health restrictions also make people happy. Jordan Seabache, 24, took advantage of Lille’s decision not to release Timothy Vie in the international recess to make his American election debut. The Washington-born Stryker quickly moved to France, where he grew up and even wore a blues jersey twice. Staying on the radars of his hometown federation, take a look at his profile and the statistics of Reims, Rennes, and then the Young Boys in Bern, whose loan became a success in the following months (13 goals from last December).
This did not save American coach Greg Berhalter. As he entered the game at the first meeting, he displayed his Pefok Flocked jersey – his mother’s name – for the first time before celebrating his first term at the second meeting. Among the rising stars is Sergino Dest, Giovanni Raina or Christian Pulisic, who often shrugs with Messi, Holland and Giroud at the respective clubs.
Seabach did not make any complications. “If I’re here, it’s because I deserve it,” he explains to RMC Sport. The player naturally joined the waiting group.
The very calm approach of the group helped the integration. “It changes compared to Switzerland, a little German mentality, a little tighter and more serious, he testifies. In the United States, it’s a little calmer and cooler when it comes to training seriously.”
His best performances with the Young Boys in the Europa League – including three goals he scored in a double against Bayer Leverkusen in the 16th – became a presentation card. The U.S. soccer team and its young nuggets knew his career.
“While training there, Dest asked me how the match against Ajax went (16, editor’s note), he said. Raina (also a Dortmund player) told me about the match against Leverkusen. I can do this in German. I’m glad I’m not a stranger, they knew who I was! “
“I sang Judge D’A Nakamura and they knew.”
An arrogance, as it still seems to some of his relatives in America, but especially as he knows more closely. In technical terms, there are still some details, such as learning the American song “Star-Spangled Banner”. “I have to learn it, I don’t know it by heart yet, I haven’t sung it,” he laughs. His “correct” English training did not destabilize him based on instructions. “I understand 80% of what he says,” he estimates. For the rest, Cain player Nicolas Gioachini worked as a translator.
For traditional hashing, Seabach played safely, resuming a French hit that crossed the border. “I tried to pick a song that they could know, it’s Nakamura, the judge, he’s smiling. I did well, they knew her too, so we had a good laugh. . “
His first two choices give Uncle Sam a new exposure to the country, and a few articles recapture his career. Last summer, several MLS franchises approached him about bringing him. Between the federation and the clubs, the American soccer world has known him for a long time. Destroy, Pulisik and Raina!
