Who’s the last player to go an American college, head to MLS, and get called in for England duty?

Yeah, this is probably a first.

[ PST: Jack Harrison’s world, as told to JPW ]

New York City FC player and Wake Forest product Jack Harrison has been called up to the England U-21 team for EURO qualifiers against Scotland and Andorra.

A former Manchester United Academy player, Harrison has 10 goals and three assists for NYC this season.

The 20-year-old right wing has not represented his birth country at any other youth level, and has openly flirted with one day playing for the United States.

This move is a major statement for MLS, and could also prod Harrison into a return to England, as the national team program will no doubt prefer him playing in the Football League.
