Bayern goes Green for US tour

By Reuters in Toronto | China Daily | Updated: 2014-07-30 07:19

Julian Green has been touted as the new face of US soccer - but it is one few Americans recognize.

That might change this week as the Bayern Munich 19-year-old wunderkind enters the spotlight during the Bundesliga champion's heavily-promoted mini-tour of the US that features a meeting with Mexican club Chivas Guadalajara in New Jersey on Thursday followed by an Aug 6 game versus the Major League Soccer All-Stars in Portland, Oregon.

For a young man who has yet to earn a first-team spot with talent-packed Bayern and played only a handful of minutes for the US in Brazil at the World Cup, Green arrives in his homeland burdened with great expectations, having made an impression on the people who matter most.
