With time ticking down, Bobby Wood stepped up, earning his side three points that could be vital in a relegation battle.
Wood scored an 80th minute winner on Sunday, leading Hamburg to a 2-1 win over Fabian Johnson and Borussia Monchengladbach. With the win, Hamburg moves into a tie on points with 15th- place Werder Bremen although Aron Johannson and co. maintain the edge on goal differential.
Entering the game’s final 10 minutes, Wood and Hamburg found themselves level as Filip Kostic and Andreas Christiansen exchanges early goals. In the 80th minute, Wood found the ball at his feet as he rose from a contested header. The USMNT forward fired a shot after taking a touch, rifling his effort into the back of the net to seal a win.
On the other side, Fabian Johnson entered as a second half substitute, joining the fray in the 57th minute.
