The Goal.com readers have spoken. They are frustrated with Neven Subotic's rejection of the USA international team, but accept his decision.
Subotic himself was born in Bosnia, but fled the country with his family at the age of two amid tumultuous political times. The Subotic family sought refuge in Germany, before moving on the America. There Subotic excelled at the high school and youth international levels. His play with the U-17 team helped earn a move to Germany with Mainz.
Viewed as one of the more promising defenders in Germany, securing the international future of Subotic is a coup for Serbia, who also boast Manchester United defender Nemanja Vidić.
We asked the Goal.com readers what they think, and the majority was sympathetic. They admitted frustration, losing a top quality talent always is, but thought Subotic should be allowed to play for whichever nation he feels the most affinity.
