[AMERICANS ABROAD] Izzy Tandir, who starred for the New York Red Bulls' U-17/18 team in the Development Academy, made his debut for French club Sochaux's reserves on Tuesday, scoring two goals in a 3-3 tie with Colmar in a friendly.

The 6-foot-4 Tandir, an American of Bosnian descent, signed with Sochaux in January and moved to France in April.

He scored eight goals in his first eight games for the Red Bulls' U-17/18s after scoring 10 goals for the Red Bulls' U-15/16 national championship team in 2011-12. The U-17/18s won the 2013 national title without him.

He was one of fours player to turn pro from the Red Bulls' academy. Amando Moreno, Santiago Castano and Matt Miazga signed homegrown contracts with the Red Bulls.

The 18-year-old Tandir trained in the fall with the Red Bulls' first team. He had previously trained at FC Toronto and SC Cambuur in the Netherlands.

Tandir, who was born in Frankfurt, Germany, to Bosnian parents but is an American citizen, has played for Bosnia's U-19 national team.

Bosnian-born players Vedad Ibisevic and Neven Subotic were also raised in the U.S. youth system but chose to move to Europe, and they are now stars in Germany's Bundesliga. Ibisevic plays for Bosnia, while Subotic is a Serbian international.
