Club Career

Joseph Gyau signed with Hoffenheim in August 2009, although he spent the rest of the year training with the Vancouver Whitecaps academy. The winger moved to Germany in the summer of 2010 and spent most of the 2010-11 season with Hoffenheim's U19 squad, making several appearances with the reserves in the spring.

Gyau began the 2011-12 season with Hoffenheim II and was invited to train with the senior team during the winter break. He made his first team debut in the DFB Pokal in February 2011.

International Career

Possessing electric speed and great skill, Gyau has been on the radar of the national team program from an early age. Gyau was a member of the USSF's Bradenton residency program, although he departed before the U17 World Cup and was therefore excluded from the team.

Gyau was a member of the ill-fated U-20 team that failed to qualify for the 2011 U-20 World Cup.

The Maryland native is expected to be an important contributor to the US U-23 team in Olympic qualifying.

I hate to be the harbinger of bad news, ladies and gentlemen, but Michael Orozco will start for the US men's national team in Jacksonville.
