USA's Bobby Wood scores 10th goal of season for Union Berlin

Friday February 26th, 2016

U.S. men's national team forward Bobby Wood was aiming left. His shot deflected right. It all counts the same, as his 10th goal of the season gave Union Berlin a 2-1 win over Karlsruher on Friday in mid-table 2. Bundesliga action.

Wood, who scored for the third straight game and his fifth goal in his last five stretching back to before Germany's winter break, pounced on a loose ball at the top of the box, navigated by a pair of defenders and let fly from about 18 yards. His shot, which was intended for the far corner, ended up deflecting off a defender, wrong-footing the goalkeeper and tucking inside the right post to cap the come-from-behind win in the 60th minute:

Wood will be aiming to keep his run of good form, with the USA's World Cup qualifiers against Guatemala looming just a month away.
