Report: Castillo willing to play for U.S.

German midfielder Jermaine Jones might not be the only player to take advantage of the new FIFA rule allowing players with dual citizenships to switch national teams, provided they have not played any full internationals.

Reports have surfaced that Mexico's Edgar Castillo, who was born in the U.S. but previously represented Mexico's U-23 team in Olympic qualifying, is eligible to make the same move.

In an interview with USSoccerPlayers.com, Castillo said that he'd consider switching to play for the U.S.

"I would play for the United States, I'd want to talk to them first, but I want to play for the U.S. I think it would be a very good opportunity for me, for my career. If they call me I would play for them."

The 22-year-old Castillo is primarily a left back, but can also play in midfield. He grew up in Las Cruces, New Mexico, and signed with Mexican side Santos after high school. As part of the 2008 Clausura championship-winning team, Castillo's play earned him a call-up to a pair of friendlies for the Mexico national team in 2007.

Castillo was also part of Mexico's U-23 team that failed to qualify for the 2008 Olympics, but has not featured with the senior national team since.

"It's been hard for me because [Mexico] switched coaches three times," Castillo told USSoccerPlayers.com. "Hugo Sanchez, he seemed to like me. He gave me my first games. Then [Sven-Goran Eriksson] played me in one [friendly]. [Javier] Aguirre called me into one camp but I didn't play and I haven't been back. I don't think I'm in his plans."
