Julian Green opted to sign a new deal with Greuther Furth despite Bundesliga interest, and the influential center midfielder is picking up where he left off.

The 25-year-old USMNT international is fit and firing for Furth, who picked up a 6-1 come-from-behind extra time win over Oberliga side RSV Meinerzhagen on Saturday.

Green swept in the corner kick that Furth used to ease upset concerns in the 71st minute.

Deadlocked after 90 minutes, Green buried his 12th career goal for Furth with a delightful shot from the edge of the area that plunked off the far post and into the goal.

It was Green’s first German Cup goal since scoring for Bayern Munich during the 2016-17 competition.

Ironically, former Bayern and fellow American-eligible midfielder Timothy Tillman assisted Dickson Abiama and Marco Meyerhofer as both players scored twice in the final 17 minutes.
