[AMERICANS ABROAD] Isaac Brizuela, the 22-year-old winger who helped Atlas finish a surprise third in the Liga MX's Torneo Clausura, says he'll consider playing for the U.S. national team.

Brizuela, who was playing on loan from Toluca, is listed as being born in Lagos de Moreno, in the state of Jalisco, but he says he was born in San Jose, Calif., and moved to Lagos de Moreno with his parents when he was 2.

He debuted for Toluca in 2009 and played 94 games for the Red Devils before joining Atlas in January. He had two goals in 18 games.

Brizuela says he has not talked with any U.S. national team representatives but he has talked with other Mexican-Americans who play in Mexico.

His only appearances for Mexico were on its under-22 team that won the 2011 Pan-American Games men's soccer competition.

    Just wondering why he one of a sudden wants to play with our National team? Never seen him play before, so I don't know how good he is. Maybe his chances in the Mexican National team have dried up and sees the US team as a more realistic possibility of ever being involved in a world cup? Why don't we ever have someone like Bale ever say claim something like that.
