Born in Washington D.C., Jordan Pefok grew up in France and played in their youth national team system before deciding to play for the U.S. men’s national team at the senior level. Pefok is your classic, get in the box and put the ball in the back of the net No. 9. He’s tall, moves well off the ball in the box, and exploits the small spaces left behind by opposing defenders. After some time playing in France and Switzerland, Pefok made a move to Union Berlin in Germany in July, 2022.
