Video: Watch David Wagner Hilariously Use His Dual Nationality to Avoid Awkward USA Question

Huddersfield manager David Wagner was asked about the USA’s failure to reach next summer’s World Cup this afternoon, however, he preferred to speak about his “successful team” in the German national side.

Wagner was born in Germany but represented the United States at international level, with the 46-year-old holding dual nationality and therefore two separate passports.

So, when he was asked about the USA’s recent failings, Wagner tactfully avoided the question.

Jurgen Klopp’s former assistant claimed the benefit of holding two passports affords him the luxury of picking and choosing which national team he supports… a decision which is of course dependant on recent results:


While the United States failed to qualify, Germany topped their qualification group having lifted the World Cup last time around in 2014.

Wagner probably won’t be able to deploy a similar tactic should Huddersfield lose this weekend, with Premier League action getting back underway with a tricky visit to Eddie Howe’s Bournemouth.
