U.S. U-18 Green scores back-to-back hat tricks for Bayern Munich
[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
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 Rankovic and Toni Kroos in the win over Fanclub Wildenau. Juergen Foerster drew 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.
