Jurgen Klinsmann drew widespread criticism by including Julian Green – and not Landon Donovan – in his 23-man World Cup roster, but the United States head coach now believes the German-based 18-year-old can provide a unique advantage – maybe even become the team's secret weapon.
Green played only three minutes as a Champions League substitute for his club team Bayern Munich, spending most of his time in the reserve squad. But word out of Germany is that Green, despite being incredibly raw at the top level, has a special knack for drawing fouls in the box and earning penalty kicks.
