Fabian Johnson celebrates his first goal in a U.S. jersey after putting the Americans ahead of Turkey in the first half at Red Bull Arena on Sunday.

Fabian Johnson's first U.S. men's national team goal was quite the beauty.

From his position at right back, Johnson worked a give-and-go with Michael Bradley and finished with a clinical one-timed effort for his first international goal, giving the USA a 1-0 lead over Turkey in the 26th minute of Sunday's friendly at Red Bull Arena. Johnson, the versatile German-American who will join Borussia Monchengladbach next season after most recently playing at Hoffenheim, delivered a short pass to Bradley in the attacking third before continuing his run. Bradley spotted him, lofting a perfectly weighted chip into his path at the center of the Turkey box.

Johnson hit it off a bounce with his left foot, tucking his shot inside the left post to complete the sequence and put the Americans in front. Watch it all below:
