The 18-year-old Bayern Munich product has attracted high media and fan interest after his one-time switch in national allegiance from Germany to the U.S. He is certainly a project for the future, with only one first-team appearance for Pep Guardiola’s side, but he could see time in a reserve role in Brazil.

OUTLOOK: Klinsmann said Green isn’t just along for the ride in Brazil, which means he could serve as a late-game spark on the wing or up top. Despite his inexperience, he has game-changing speed and technical ability, and he’s not afraid to take defenders on by dribbling at them.
