KION 2020

CHICAGO (AP) — Chicago Fire goalkeeper Gabriel Slonina says he will remain with the U.S. national team program and will turn down an invitation to join Poland. The 18-year-old who is viewed as a potential standout issued a statement on Friday, saying “my heart is American. This country has given me and my family all the opportunities I could ask for.” Slonina was listed on Poland’s 39-man roster earlier this week ahead of next month’s four Nations League matches. U.S. coach Gregg Berhalter did not include Slonina on his latest roster.
