German-Born midfielder Fabian Johnson will not make his international debut for the United States during their upcoming friendlies against Costa Rica and Belgium because he has yet to receive his clearance from FIFA.

Prior to being called up by new U.S. head coach Jurgen Klinsmann, Johnson - who holds dual U.S. and German citizenship - had previously represented Germany at the youth and Under-21 levels. Since Johnson has not yet completed his one-time switch procedure between the U.S. and Germany, he will be unable to participate in the matches.

Johnson will still train with the team in California ahead of the match against Costa Rica in Carson, Calif., on Friday, and then travel with the team to Brussels as they prepare for their match against Belgium on Sept. 6.
