CHICAGO (AP) — Los Angeles FC midfielder Timmy Tillman has been approved by FIFA to change his national team affiliation to the United States from Germany, following a move made by younger brother Malik a year earlier. The 24-year-old Timmy Tillman was born in Germany to a father in the U.S. military and a German mother. He played for Germany in qualifying for the 2018 European Under-19 Championship and joined LA this year after four seasons with Greuther Fürth.  Malik Tillman turns 21 on Sunday. He made his U.S. senior debut last June 1 and has played three international matches, all exhibitions.
