WATCH: Julian Green trains with the USMNT on American soil

Julian Green is 18 years old and scoring tons of goals for Bayern Munich II. More importantly, he’s young and a newly-minted member of the United States national team who could presumably make the roster for this summer’s World Cup in Brazil.

So, like English fans with Michael Owen in 1998, United States Soccer supporters are devouring anything Green-related.

And so it’s such that when MLSSoccer.com posts a three-minute video of him warming-up and training with the US national team, I watched the whole thing just in case something awesome happened.

It didn’t, really. I mean, he looks pretty quick and he’s in much better shape than me, but really it’s endemic of US Soccer fiends that despite me telling you nothing great happens, you’re going to watch, too.

So here’s the video. Enjoy the jogging.

    LOL….you’re right. However, I am kinda a believer that you can watch a team run up and down the field a few times and say, “That guy belongs on the field with these other.” or “That guy is over his head.”

    Just seeing him the don the practice jersey is enough for me. You can’t tell anything from watching him jog around, but he is practicing everyday with Bayern…to me that’s enough.

    I watched the whole thing and spread it like it’s hot.
