It was not the prettiest of goals, but Terrence Boyd will take it all the same.
Boyd added to his goal-scoring total on Saturday by netting the second goal in Rapid Vienna’s 4-0 victory over Wacker Innsbruck. Boyd was a bit lucky to find the back of the net, as a cross from the left was deflected by a defender before bouncing off of Boyd’s chest and into the goal.
Boyd’s 55th-minute insurance tally made up for the penalty kick he had saved earlier in the game, and now raises his output for the season to four goals in league play and five across all competitions. It should also raise his confidence as he tries to earn a call-up to the U.S. Men’s National Team’s final two World Cup qualifiers in October.
Here is the goal (at the 0:26 mark):
What do you think of Boyd’s latest goal? Think he is bound for a move away from Vienna by this time next year? How likely is it for Boyd to earn a more permanent spot on the U.S. Men’s National Team ahead of next summer’s World Cup?
