Bayern Munich’s Malik Tillman will represent the US men’s national team. Tillman has begun the process of filing FIFA’s one-time switch to represent the American side, according to ESPN. The player stands as a dual-citizenship figure, eligible to represent the USMNT and Germany after being born in Nuremberg to an American father and German mother.
