U.S. men's national team player Julian Green has been called up to Bayern Munich's first team for the club's upcoming tour of the United States, a club spokesman confirmed to MLSsoccer.com.

At 19, Green became the youngest U.S. player to score in a World Cup with his extra-time goal against Belgium in the Round of 16.

Bayern's U.S. tour begins Aug. 1 with a friendly against Chivas Guadalajara at Red Bull Arena in Harrison, New Jersey. They will face the MLS All-Stars on Aug. 7 in Portland, Oregon.
