Watch: The Cooligans query (and joke with) Jordan Pefok

Cooligans Alexis Guerreros and Christian Polanco interviewed Theoson-Jordan Siebatcheu aka Jordan Pefok briefly after a Union Berlin game ahead of the September friendlies--  for which he wasn't called on by Coach Gregg Berhalter.

Pefok, who grew up in France and is eligible to play for the USA because he was born in Washington, D.C. (to Cameroonian parents), has three goals and two assists in six appearances for Bundesliga first-place Union Berlin.

The 26-year-old was asked about being referred to by the surname Siebatcheu (on the Union Berlin roster) and other times as Pefok (on U.S. roster). (He has previously stated he prefers Pefok, his mother's surname).

The Cooligans asked Pefok, who's scored once in nine games since debuting for the USA in 2021, about his U.S. national team status.

    I feel for this guy because he's in the prime of his career, but the US coach doesn't know how to integrate him in his system. It's a shame. Beerholder will select him for Qater because he's desperate at this point. He will only be used as a 2nd half sub if they abandon tactics and play direct to score a goal.

    It's a shame that his English is Soooo Bad, that he has to us a Translator to understand such Simple questions, and give such Simple answers. ...
    I imagine this has to play some, into why he doesn't get called up...
    How do the Coaches get the "Game Plan" to him.???
    Similar to what Luca De La Torre is going thru in Spain, at Celta.
    Not sure what "Jordy's" English League Options were, last summer, but he would have been better Served to go there, if he really wanted to get on the National Team.
