  • Bill Hamid had a busy offseason, training with West Brom, going on D.C. United’s Indonesian tour and participating in U.S. training camp. Despite just one international cap, the 23-year-old is thrilled to be a regular call-up. "I never expected to make it this far when I was a kid. I just played soccer, had fun with it,” Hamid said. “Now that I’m here in the situation, I get put in the same sentence as those guys, get called in by the same coach as they do, I’m representing my country. For me, it's very special."
