West Bromwich Albion striker Daryl Dike is in contention for a recall to the United States Men’s National Soccer team, reports The Athletic.
The 22-year-old bagged both goals in the Baggies’ 2-0 win over Middlesbrough on Saturday.
Dike did so in front of USMNT assistant manager B.J. Callaghan. The West Brom forward took his tally to five goals in 15 league games with the brace.
Dike joined the Championship club last January from Orlando City, but he played just twice before the season ended.
He picked up a thigh injury in August, which ended his chances of going to the World Cup in Qatar.
Dike returned to action in November and has been impressive since.
He last featured for the U.S. in July 2021, playing twice as they won the CONCACAF Gold Cup.
The USMNT return to action next month after a disappointing World Cup campaign. The Netherlands ran out comfortable 3-1 winners over Gregg Berhalter’s side in the round of 16.
Anthony Hudson was appointed as the Stars and Stripes’ interim manager last month.
The former New Zealand manager is expected to select Dike when they play Grenada and El Salvador in the CONCACAF Nations League.
The Oklahoma-born hitman will be glad to be back with the national team if that happens.
More importantly, he is eyeing Premier League promotion with Carlos Corberan’s side.
Albion are 10th in the Championship after 33 games, with five points between them and the play-off places.
There are 13 games left in the campaign, and Dike can fire West Brom to the top six if he maintains his form.
