Jones of US says he wouldn’t celebrate vs Germany
Question of the Day
SAO PAULO (AP) - American midfielder Jermaine Jones says he won’t celebrate if he scores against Germany on June 26.
The 32-year-old was born in Frankfurt and played three exhibitions for the Germans in 2008. But he was among the final cuts by coach Joachim Loew from the European Championship roster, and Jones switched allegiance to the United States, where his father was born.
Jones made his U.S. national team debut in October 2010 and has gone on to score twice in 42 appearances.
He said Wednesday: “I think it’s in respect. I grew up in this country. They gave me a lot. I have my first cap for the national team in Germany. I’m happy, too, that Joachim Loew gave me this chance.”
