Watch: Bobby Wood scores winning goal for USMNT vs. Germany


Bobby Wood made it two-for-two in scoring late winning goals against European powers on Wednesday, netting the United States' second goal in a 2-1 friendly win over world champions Germany in Cologne. 

The goal caps a stunning pair of friendly results for the national team, having beaten the Netherlands 4-3 in a thrilling game in Amsterdam last week. In that game, Wood scored the winning goal in stoppage time. 

Wednesday's goal didn't come quite that late, but it wasn't far off. On Wednesday, the Hawaiian-born forward took a nice ball from Brad Evans, benefited from a perfect dummy run from Jordan Morris, turned on his defender, and unleashed a precise, powerful finish from the top of the box to give the United States the lead in the 87th minute.

The goal isn't just Wood's second in this set of U.S. national team games -- the pair of strikes are also the first two goal of his national team career.
