BEIJING, March 19 (Xinhuanet) – Bayern Munich’s teenage phenom Julian Green has officially decided to play for U.S. men’s national team, Jurgen Klinsmann announced Tuesday.
The 18-year-old winger made his Bayern Munich debut earlier this season, and he has filed a one-time switch. He will be representing USMNT in a friendly against Mexico, April 2, if the switch approved in time.
“We are absolutely thrilled that Julian has chosen to be a part of the U.S. National Team Programs,” said Klinsmann in a statement.
U.S. soccer expects the process to be completed in the following weeks.
“As we have said, he is a very special talent. We wanted him to feel comfortable with our program and listen to his heart when making this decision. He is an exciting player with a tremendously bright future.”
