USMNT's Julian Green scores for Bayern II, assisted by Ribery's brother
U.S. men's national team's Julian Green scored his first goal of the club season Tuesday, netting for Bayern Munich II in Germany's fourth division against Bayreuth.
According to game reports, Green finished off a pass from Steeven Ribery–the 19-year-old brother of Bayern star Franck Ribery–in the 17th minute to give Bayern II the early lead. It was Green's first goal since a June tally against Qatar in the Toulon Tournament as part of the U.S. Under-23 national team. Ribery scored the eventual winner, while Green went the distance in the 2-1 victory.
Green spent last season on loan at Hamburg, where he was used sparingly and did not score, and he will remain with the Bayern reserves for now, according to first-team manager Pep Guardiola.
Green famously scored for the U.S. in his World Cup debut against Belgium in extra time of the 2014 round of 16.
