It may only be in friendly matches, but Julian Green is continuing to show the goal-scoring ability that is quickly endearing him to Bayern Munich manager Pep Guardiola.
During Bayern’s second friendly match of their winter training camp in the Arab Gulf against Kuwait SC, Green received a pass on the left wing, dribbled into the box with his right foot, cut away from goal and a defender and unleashed a blast past three more players into the side netting. The goal put Bayern up 2-0 at the time on their way to an 8-0 victory.
It’s the second consecutive friendly match for Bayern that Green has scored in. The 18-year-old Tampa, Fla. native was invited to join the first team in their winter training camp after scoring 15 times in 18 appearances with the Bayern reserves this past fall.
Here’s a video of Green’s goal against Kuwait SC:
