There's clutch, and then there's what Terrence Boyd did for Rapid Vienna on Thursday.
Down a goal on aggregate and facing elimination in the third qualifying round of the Europa League, Boyd came up big for Rapid Vienna in second-half stoppage time by drawing a penalty kick that a teammate converted and then scoring an insurance goal to give the Green-Whites a 2-0 win and 3-2 aggregate victory over Serbian outfit Vojvodina.
The U.S. men's national team striker was fouled in the penalty area in the 91st minute of Vienna's home leg of the two-game series and Deni Alar put it away to give the club the lead on away goals. But the match did not come down to that, as Boyd netted his third goal across all competitions in the early parts of this season in the 98th minute by placing a shot to the far post after a teammate unselfishly passed it to him.

What do you think of Boyd's heroics? Impressed with how he has started at Rapid Vienna? Would you like to see him called up to the U.S. men's national team friendly vs. Mexico, or would you rather see him stay with Vienna?
