U.S. Men’s National Team forward Julian Green has undergone an exam on the left shoulder he injured during the USMNT’s 2-2 draw with Mexico last week.
The news comes from MLSSoccer.com’s Greg Seltzer who says an awkward fall against El Tri resulted in the Bayern Munich II player missing his team’s 2-0 derby victory over SpVgg Bayern Hof last weekend.
At this time there’s no word on the severity of the injury. Green has enjoyed a prosperous season for Bayern II, scoring 15 goals and recording eight assists in 23 league appearances.

According to Metro, Los Angeles FC is close to trading for Red Bulls midfielder Sacha Kljestan.
The U.S. Men’s National Team attacker has led Major League Soccer in assists over the last two seasons, and has served as an integral piece in the Red Bulls midfield since joining the club in 2015.
The Red Bulls made Kljestan club captain ahead of the 2017 season when former midfielder Dax McCarty was traded away to the Chicago Fire in exchange for allocation money.
Kljestan spent the first five seasons of his MLS career with now-defunct side Chivas USA, before playing in Europe Belgian club Anderlecht.

After selecting five players in Tuesday’s MLS Expansion Draft, Los Angeles FC announced that it will be sending two of those players to the Montreal Impact.
LA FC will be sending Jukka Raitala and Raheem Edwards to the Impact.
The return? Bob Bradley and LA FC will acquire Impact center back Laurent Ciman — who has proven to be one of the best defenders in MLS since arriving in 2015.
“Laurent is a top defender who provides leadership and great distribution,” Bradley said upon acquiring Ciman. “His experience in the league and with the Belgian National Team will be invaluable as we build our club.”
With the addition of Ciman now in place, LA FC has built a strong central defensive partnership after the club also brought in former FC Dallas defender Walker Zimmerman in a trade on Sunday.
The expansion side already made a major splash with its first Designated Player signing this year, bringing in Mexican international Carlos Vela.
