Aron Jóhannsson is an American!

Well, for the purposes of soccer from now on at least. That'll help our putrid strike depth immensely...wise move from the kid considering he never had a chance of playing for a World Cup for Iceland.

As an American Icelandophile who follows AGF (his former team) this makes me entirely too happy.


Fun Fact: Jóhannsson was signed by AZ Alkmaar Zaanstree (Dutch) to essentially replace outgoing striker Jozy Altidore, who just finished a transfer to Sunderland. One would have to imagine Altidore played a role in Jóhannsson's decision as they were teammates for half a year...especially considering the duo could be the top two forwards for Team USA before too long.
