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:
