Terrence Boyd was already a safe bet to be called up to next month’s U.S. Men’s National Team pre-World Cup training camp, but he is building up some serious momentum to try and lock up a World Cup roster spot.
Boyd delivered his second straight two-goal game, include a late game-winning strike to help Rapid Vienna beat recently-crowned Austrian champions Red Bull Salzburg on Saturday. The 23-year-old striker bagged a brace in last week’s 2-2 draw vs. SV Grodig, ending a drought that dated back to March 2.
Boyd’s 84th-minute winner gives him 13 goals in Austrian League play and 18 in all competitions for Rapid Vienna, which now sits three points clear of Austria Vienna for second place in the Austrian Bundesliga.
What do you think of Boyd’s late surge? See him making the U.S. World Cup team?
