Dom Dwyer entered U.S. Men’s National Team camp with plenty of expectations, and he certainly lived up to them in his first game in red, white and blue.
The Sporting Kansas City forward, who was born in England and gained citizenship this year, scored in the first half of his USMNT career.
Dwyer opened his American account in the 19th minute as he struck a beautiful close-range volley into the back of the net to hand his team a one-goal advantage.

Throughout his time on the field, Dwyer impressed with his physical hold-up play and scoring prowess as he created quite a few more opportunities for Bruce Arena’s men.
Dwyer wasn’t the only player who stood out on Saturday. Kellyn Acosta scored a tremendous free kick goal, Joe Corona was a workhorse in midfield and Graham Zusi put in a solid shift on the right side of the field.
What did you think of Dwyer’s performance? Which player stood out to you on Saturday?
