Just read this, I think its in his best interest if he choose's USA over NZ for national senior team selection. Plus he wont have visa issues playing in the MLS(if he was to go there).

Fk the AW's Im American!

Interesting, but also likely irrelevant. He'll never play for the USA, and if he decides to make himself eligible for them, it'll likely be no big loss, NZ football has a lot of depth in those wide forward positions atm and for the future.

Considering Boyd would either play up front or as an attacking winger of some sort, we have - Rojas, Smeltz, Brockie, Kosta, Ryan Thomas, potentially Howieson/Wood/Payne, even Fenton depending on how the new manager utilises them. Plenty of talent.

Jesus Christ, why did he accept that interview? He looks like a young arrogant tool. Scores a goal after playing 30 odd games and the starts talking up all his options and hey look at me. Perhaps he may be better suited in America.

I actually think just nobody cared to ask him before, if he had been asked that last year, I'd say he'd have said the same thing.

I don't think he sounds arrogant in that iv. Says that he's finding his confidence, and that he's fortunate to have a bit of pace. He comes across pretty well I reckon. 

Incredible stamina. No shame. Yellow Fever.

Yeah I think it's a worthwhile article too, not too many people were aware of it, somewhat interesting due to his recent performances. At worst it's an item of newsworthy interest for some people.

Oh lord. Non news story makes news. Boyd about 10th in the AW queue so makes him about 50th for Team America (**** yEAH!)

Think it might just be a cry to try and get called up to the NZ full squad against Japan! Watch this space...

English based All Whites fan! Would love to watch an All White game one day.

I don't think Boyd is that cynical. There's a pretty obvious news story there though for the skin-deep Australasian football press. Kid does well two games in a row, kid hasn't played for national team yet. Speculate on his future in national team. Discover he's also American. Etc and so on.

Highly unlikely Boyd rang up Aiden at 442 and said "hey, you know what, I want to try to leverage the All Whites into calling me up...want to help with that?"

Incredible stamina. No shame. Yellow Fever.

he's still only 18, so he's got a long way to go. However I believe it'd be a long time before the US national team would take an interest in him, and even by then the all whites would have picked him already.

He wouldn't have visa issues if he wanted to play MLS if he chose to represent NZ... He has an American passport!

Why would the US care? There might be probably hundreds of better players in the US college system alone, and then there's the MLS and everything else. And they're all playing on US soil under the noses of their own coaches. Unless he breaks into a top euro league in the next 2-3 seasons nobody over there is going to care.

As much chance of playing for USA as Rory Fallon had of playing for the senior England side (and he played international football for England at U16, U17, U18, U19 and U20 levels).

As a teenage player, it's good  that he has some ambition though...

But the reality is they have heaps of more talented young players eligible for the USA but have grown up overseas - funnily enough including German - American Terrence Boyd, Rapid Vienna first choice striker (22 goals in 50 games):

There are lots of young Americans these days at decent clubs around the world such as teenager Brek Shea at Stoke City:

If he makes the grade and is good enough to be a starter in the MLS in the future, good on him.  He will never play for them though as others have pointed out.

Interesting that he's spent more time living in America than Nz.
