Jozy has one goal in five appearances for the national team since 2017. OK, I guess I can't say he's done nothing for the national team, but saying he's done very, very little for the national team in the last 4 years is fair.
I was joking about Donovan and Dempsey.
Jozy is an all time great, but nothing even remotely suggests that he can currently offer more than any one of the top 6 or 7 strikers available to the national team. It's WC qualifying, you've got to go with your best. You can't run a guy out there because he was great 5 years ago.
So why are you against idea of jozy getting a look? As you say, its wc qualifying, you go with the best. If he is healthy, why not take a look. What is there to lose? We only had 1 striker perform okay in the last 4 years and he has yet to play against good competition.
