[AMERICANS ABROAD]German-American teenager Julian Green scored three goals in the second half as Bayern Munich beat Fanclub Wildenau, 15-1, Saturday in the annual FC Bayern Dream Game that had special significance. It was the coaching debut of new coach Pep Guardiola. And if that was not enough, Green followed that up with a team-high three goals Sunday in another win over an area amateur team, this time 9-1 against TSV Regen, which was celebrating its 125th anniversary.

Green, 18, is the son of a father who served in the U.S. military and a German mother and has lived in Germany since he was 2. The winger scored 10 goals in 26 games for Bayern's A-Jugend team in 2012-13. He has played for the U.S. under-18 national team and is eligible to play in the 2015 Under-20 World Cup.

Besides the three goals by Green, Bayern got four goals from youngster Patrick Weihrauch, two each from French star Franck Ribery and Mitchell Weiser and single goals from Oliver Markoutz, Thomas Mueller, Vladimir Rankovicand Toni Kroos in the win over Fanclub Wildenau. Juergen Foersterdrew a huge round of applause from the crowd of 11,000 when he scored a consolation goal for the Fan Club XI.

On Sunday, Regen amazingly took the lead on Daniel Kopp's sixth-minute goal, but Mueller tied the score and Patrick Weihrauch scored twice to give Bayern a 3-1 lead.

In the second half, Green netted another hat trick with Emre Can, Alessandro Schoepf and Kroos adding single tallies.

    SINCE US SOCCER REFUSES TO REALIGN ITS DOMESTIC STRUCTURE WE NOW NEED TO RELY ON FOREIGN CLUBS AND LEAGUES WHICH PROVIDE THE NECESSARY AND PROPER ENVIRONMENT FOR THE PRODUCTION OF US PLAYERS. HOWEVER, THESE PLAYERS ARE NOT US BORN...THEY ARE OF EXTRACTION! COME ON US SOCCER...TAKE YOU FINGER...! YOU'RE DESTROYING THE DREAMS OF MANY YOUNG NATURALLY BORN AMERICANS.

    What makes him an "American teen"? The fact that some German woman used an American man as a sperm donor?

    David, that is an extremely rude and offensive comment. You don't know anything about this kid's parents.

    I don't understand why there is criticism against our German Americans. Although they might not have been born here, they have still decided to represent our country and wear our crest, and I believe that should be the only thing that matters. I understand the desire to have a youth system in place where we produce local young talent that challenge for places on the national team but that is still a work in progress so why would we not use all available resources? Why criticize a kid when all he has done is decide he want to play for us? Who are any of us to determine whether he's "American" enough?

    Come on Eric where's your sense of humor:) Luis is correct...what else are we to do to become competitive with the rest of the world? Produce (or reproduce them abroad!)The MLS is not authentic and competitive, the NCAA obviously is not of the standard due to a million rules and 16-18 games in a 3 month season, and the USSDA is recreational! We need to do something...there are an abundance of "Americans" born abroad in numerous "foregn" Professional leagues!!! FIND THEM US SOCCER!!! "What a shame!"

    Well, he was born in the US to an American father. Makes him as much American as German, no? http://espnfc.com/blog/_/name/bayernmunich/id/461?cc=5901

    If Julian Green was born in the United States and his father is a US Citizen who served in the US military, how is it that he is not American?

    He was born in Tampa, Florida. He didn't live in Germany until his parents split and he moved there with is mom when he was 2 years old. Bayern found him running circles around German kids in a park and signed him up. He is as American as american citizens get. He was born here, and he has grown into a heck of a goal machine since moving to Germany. I lived in France when I was young, but I am still American.
