Green impressing in USMNT camp as expectations mount

Julian Green

By IVES GALARCEP

Julian Green is the youngest player on the U.S. Men’s World Cup team, but that isn’t keeping expectations from being very high for the Bayern Munich prospect.

Having only committed to playing for the United States in April, Green has just one appearance for the USMNT, and few fans have seen much of him in action. That isn’t stopping expectations from going through the roof after Green was one of the players to make the World Cup roster ahead of legendary U.S. national team star Landon Donovan.

In my latest piece for Goal.com, I talk to Green about making the World Cup team, and about suggestions he was promised a World Cup roster spot for choosing to play for the USA. I also discuss his impressive camp with Clint Dempsey and Fabian Johnson, who had good praise for the 19-year-old attacking prospect.

Give the story a read and let me know what you think. Excited to see Green in action? Think Jurgen Klinsmann made a mistake choosing Green and not bringing Donovan? Wish Klinsmann had brought both?
