Julian Green Accepts USMNT Call-Up for Scotland & Austria Friendlies: Nightly Soccer Report

julian green Julian Green Accepts USMNT Call Up for Scotland & Austria Friendlies: Nightly Soccer Report

USMNT hopeful Julian Green has accepted a call-up to the USA’s upcoming friendlies against Scotland and Austria. The 18-year-old Bayern Munich footballer, who is a Tampa Bay native, won’t be eligible to play, but he’ll be training with the US squad.

He’s ineligible to play because he has played for Germany’s u-19 national team in the past. In order to play for the US in the future, he’ll need an official FIFA allegiance switch.

Here’s what Klinsmann said about Green:

“Julian Green is a tremendous talent. We have been scouting him for more than two years, and we are thrilled to bring him into our camp and introduce him to the senior team program. We believe we could help him grow into a special player.”

Green currently plays for Bayern Munich’s reserve squad.

    This is huge for the national team. This guy looks incredible. He’ll be a starter by the 2018 world cup without a doubt.

    • Borussia DortMan says:

      Yeah it’s a great get for the national team once he files the one time switch. If would be great if Jürgen can convince Shawn Parker of Mainz to come aboad as well but it appears he’s waiting for a call from Germany.

    USA should recruit foreign born americans from latin america

  3. MoyesvMouvPelli says:

    Hes gonna leave Germany a perrenial World Cup contender for a team that has never won a WC? This is just like Ethiopia trying to take Zelalem from us. Not a chance if he lives up to his potential and hes played with our youth teams since he was younger no chance hes not playing Germaby

  4. Tony D says:

    His Dad is a huge US mens team supporter. He won’t have to deal wih European racism crap. He will be guaranteed to be a star here.
    Plus we even have good German and Amercan beer here now.
