[AFRICA CUP OF NATIONS] Fuad Ibrahim, who was the second youngest player after Freddy Adu ever drafted by an MLS club, has been named to Ethiopia's team for the 2013 African Cup of Nations Jan. 19-Feb. 10 in South Africa. Ibrahim, who is now 21 and plays for the NASL Minnesota Stars, is the second American after Nevin Subotic to represent the USA at the Under-17 World Cup and then make a one-time switch to represent another country at the senior level.

Ibrahim was 15 when he was drafted in the second round of the 2007 MLS SuperDraft by FC Dallas. Later that year he played all four games for the USA at the Under-17 World Cup in South Korea. He never played for Dallas but did make 26 appearances for Toronto FC over three seasons.

After sitting out 2011, Ibrahim played five games for Minnesota in 2012. After the season, he played Ethiopia at the CECAFA Cup in Uganda.

Subotic played in the 2005 U-17 World Cup but later decided to represent Serbia at the senior level. The Borussia Dortmund central defender played for Serbia at the 2010 World Cup and is one of the German Bundesliga's top players at his position.
