USMNT midfielder Julian Green scored his first goal of the young season, going 90 minutes for the second-straight game during Greuther Furth’s 3-1 defeat of St. Pauli at the Millerntor on Friday.

Green, still just 24, picked up the ball from well outside the 18 and hit a sweet strike into the upper reaches of the goal to salt away the result in Hamburg.

He’s into his third season with the 2.Bundesliga outfit, and has registered eight goals and four assists in 56 matches.

Green is a name to watch as Gregg Berhalter names his squad for the USMNT’s September friendlies against Mexico and Uruguay. The coach will not be limited by the international calendar when it comes to where he pulls players.
