- Aron Johannson has not played for the United States men's national team since September 2015. Five years later, healthy and in top goal-scoring form for Swedish side Hammarby, the man known as "Iceman" by American soccer fans is determined to return to the USMNT fold. In an exclusive interview with ESPN FC's Sebastian Salazar, Johannsson opens up about his determination to get back in the U.S. squad ahead of the 2022 FIFA World Cup. The 30-year-old striker discusses his conversations with head coach Gregg Berhalter, playing in the 2014 World Cup and what he made of the team's matches against Wales and Panama, led by rising American stars like Gio Reyna, Weston McKennie, Sergino Dest and Yunus Musah. Johannsson also reveals what it was like to train earlier this year with one of Hammarby's owners, AC Milan striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic, whom he calls a "freak of nature." Plus, the Alabama native explains why he has no regrets about choosing the United States over Iceland and why his next career move could bring him stateside to play in MLS.
