USMNT German-American phenom Julian Green speaks ahead of U.S. match with Mexico

By Adam Serrano

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- The matches between the United States and Mexico does not need attention, but Wednesday's match will get significant publicity as it may be the U.S. debut of Bayern Munich wunderkind Julian Green. 

The addition of Green -- a former hockey star --  to the USMNT fold has been a hot button issue in the American soccer circles prompting considerable hype of a player that SB Nation's Ryan Rosenblatt labels "the best prospect that the USA has ever had."  Prior to the match, Green did not speak to the media, but U.S. captain Clint Dempsey and head coach Jurgen Klinsmann each said that he has acclimated well to the team ahead of the Mexico match. 

Ahead of the Mexico match, Green spoke to the federation's website about switching to the United States.
