If we are going to the tournament in India, maybe we should call him up considering he was the best out of the u20's in the camp.

Was an unused sub on the bench last weekend, as Bremen U19s (3rd - 57pts ) beat Hertha BSC U19s (2nd - 57pts but better GD) 4-0.

He had probably not long returned from U20s camp in Wellington.

He is still listed under a USA flag on Soccerway.

Last game of regular season this weekend, and Bremen host the top team Hamburger SV U19 (58 pts). Trev's team win that, and Hertha lose or draw their last game - and Bremen win the league which is the Bundesliga U19 North Region.

North Region winners then go into a final series verus winners of the two other Regions (West & South), plus 2nd team from West to find the top U19 club side in Germany. Bayern's U19 side are leading South region at moment by a point.

Hopefully Trevor gets back into Bremen's starting lineup.

Last day drama.

Bremen U19s (finish with 58 pts ) drew 2-2, with Hamburger SV U19 (59 pts), who were top of the table going into the last game.

2nd placed Hertha BSC U19s won 2-0 (60 pts), to snatch the title North Region U19s.

Unfortunately Trev and his team finish 3rd, and don't make the playoffs to find best U19 club in Germany.

Has been promoted to the Werder Bremen II, the reserve team who played in 3. Liga (the third tier) this season - a professional league.

Unfortunately they were relegated this season to the regional leagues, but nevertheless great to see a Kiwi being trusted this much at a young age. One step away from the first team! He'll be rubbing shoulders with the USA's golden boy Josh Sargent, who scored against us in the 6-0 thrashing at the U20 World Cup last year and earned a senior USA call up at 17 years of age.

He's now listed with a NZ flag on Transfermarkt.

Awesome hope the States don't get him, hopefully he can be involved in our U20's or the All Whites soon.

See above.

Recently returned to NZ to trial for U20's, and apparently was bit of a stand out at the trials.

You would hope eligibility has all been checked out.

Zwetsloot required Fifa clearance in order to play for New Zealand as he was born in the Netherlands to Dutch and American parents, and only lived here from the ages of two to 15 before landing a place in the IMG Academy in the United States.

But Rufer, who helped facilitate Zwetsloot's move from IMG to his former club Werder Bremen, said the player's availability, which came through in time for the OFC Championship, could be real win for New Zealand Football going forward.

Do you think the eligibility process was why he was named only as a reserve for the camp that was before they flew. and then called in late when he got cleared?

Unused sub in 3-1 loss to Jeddeloh.

Another unused sub. Bremen II beat Eintracht Norderstedt 2-1.

Remember Bremen II is an U23 side, and Zwetsloot is only 19.

His young star team mate Josh Sargeant (age 18), has scored 7 goals this season. 

He bagged a goal for USA against Peru in October FIFA window.

I see Bremen play Kaizer Chiefs in a friendly this week in Johannesburg, where I guess they are based during winter break in Bundesliga.

Presume young Trevor is there with the first team, soaking up the African sun, away from the German chill.

On the bench for Bremen II (3rd on table North division) in a 2-0 loss to Lube (2nd) in Regionaliga (German 4th tier).

His first match day squad at that level since Dec 2018.

Possibly was injured? Anyway good sign for U20s WC.

Anyone know how Zwetsloot, has gone with his rehab, post nasty injury at U20 World Cup?

Over a year ago now.

Has been watching at some pre season games in Auckland and am told he is not far away from returning to light training. Propably should be in another category now as was released from WB long time back?

Thanks for update, hopefully recovers well aka Ryan Thomas, rather than sadly seemingly fading away like Henry Cameron, Liam Graham.

And yes an Unattached FC signing now.

Hopefully just the beginning to restarting his career. That bad ACL injury was May 2019 (20 months ago) so has been a long road back.

He looked a real promising talent back then. Still only 21. Good luck to him.

Said this a couple times of Twitter, I wonder if Des has played a hand in this move? He must rate him by selecting him in the u20s & being in Melbourne now, he might have put them in contact with each other. I really hope he has a fantastic season and gets looked at by AL teams.
