[AMERICANS ABROAD] U.S. national team assistant coach Andi Herzog and scout Matthias Hamann will be at Monday's Hertha Berlin-Kaiserslautern game to watch 20-year-old John Anthony Brooks and fellow German-American Alfredo Morales. The 6-foot-7 has spent time with both the U.S. and German under-20 national teams.

Brooks has started 15 games this season for Hertha and emerged as one of the top prospects in the German second division. Morales, 22, played his first game of the season in last week's 1-0 win over Aalen

U.S. national team coach Jurgen Klinsmann deploys his staff across Mexico and Europe to watch Americans abroad each week.

Herzog was at the Augsburg-Hoffenheim game (only Fabian Johnson played) on Saturday, and Hamann and he were at Red Bull Salzburg- Rapid Vienna (Terrence Boyd scored for Rapid) before heading to Berlin.

    The German Americans can be good additions, and this is the path we are taking through Brazil (assuming we get there.) But in the long run we need a more Latin style & we have the youngsters out there to play it. We don't need 10 thugs out there. 2 or 3 in defense are enough.

    @John Pomeroy: What do you mean by we don't need 10 thugs?
