For the United States, the main talking point will be the debut for 19-year-old Julian Green. Head coach Jurgen Klinsmann will have the services of 18-year-old Bayern Munich player Julian Green. The highly talented Green, a dual U.S.-German citizen who has played for the U-19 German National Team, filed for and was granted approval by FIFA to play for the U.S. senior team. Green is no longer eligible to play for Germany.
