Boyd scores first Bundesliga goal in Darmstadt upset of Dortmund


After several injury-plagued seasons, Terrence Boyd is back to scoring goals.

Boyd scored his first goal since joining Darmstadt in Saturday’s clash with Borussia Dortmund. The forward’s finish came in the 21st minute, giving Darmstadt the 1-0 lead over Christian Pulisic and Dortmund.

The goal is Boyd’s first senior goal since 2014, beginning his tenure with RB Leipzig. Body left the club in January, joining relegation-battlers Darmstadt, and has since made three appearances with the club.

Darmstadt went on to defeat Dortmund, 2-1, with Boyd logging 58 minutes while Pulisic featured for the full 90.

Here’s a closer look at Boyd’s goal:


  1. It’s really an ode to his quality that he is picked as an immediate starter by a fellow bundesliga club after basically two years out of football. That tells you, not just something, but tells you a lot. I don’t know of any USMNT striker that could do it. Maybe Wood. Maybe not.

    • It is certainly encouraging. But you shouldn’t lump all Bundesliga clubs together. Each club is different and this shows the importance of landing at a good fit. For Boyd it’s been about landing at a club with weak forward depth that is in the relegation zone and desperate for a change. Enter Boyd immediately into the starting lineup.
