German-American winger Julian Green has reportedly decided to play for the US Men’s National Team instead of Germany, according to a report tonight in Bild, a German publication. Additionally, the USSF has confirmed that Green will practice with the USMNT in Frankfurt ahead of its upcoming friendly against Ukraine.

If both reports are true, this is fantastic news for the US Men’s National Team as it appeared likely that Green was going to select Germany as the country he would play for at the senior level.

However, the 18-year-old Bayern Munich footballer has reportedly been promised a spot on the USMNT squad for the FIFA World Cup 2014 if he selects the US as his national team. Say it’s so, Julian. Say it’s so!
