[WORLD CUP 2014 QUALIFYING] High-scoring Aron Johannsson, who was born in Alabama of Icelandic parents and returned as a teenager to attend IMG Academy in Florida, has accepted a call-up to the Iceland national team for upcoming World Cup 2014 qualifiers against Albania and Switzerland. Johannsson, 21, leads Denmark's Superliga with 11 goals in 11 games for AGF Aarhus.

He was one of three forwards called up along with Gunnar Heioar Porvaldsson of Swedish club Norrkoeping and Alfred Finnbogason of Ditch club Heerenveen.

Aron Jo, as he's known in Iceland, has played for Iceland's under-21 team, requiring permission from FIFA to switch to the U.S. senior national team.

He recently had said his dream was always to play for Iceland but that it would be hard to say no to Jurgen Klinsmann if the U.S. national team coach asked.
