Hawaiian native and senior national team striker Bobby Wood scored the lone goal in Union Berlin's 1-0 win over Heidenheim, his eight straight match with a goal.

Here's the highlight:

Today's effort was good enough to earn yet another shout out from the boss:

It's been a career season for Wood, having scored 17 goals in 28 matches. Last weekend, the 23-year old set the record for most goals by an American in the Bundesliga or 2. Bundesliga. The previous record was held by Conor Casey and Eric Wynalda.

Union Berlin is currently in sixth in the German second division, a distant 13 points out of third place and a shot at promotion. However, Wood has been linked with a move to another club, with Hamburg, Bayer Leverkusen, and multiple English clubs reportedly interested in securing his services this summer.

Wood, who has also played with 1860 Munich and Erzgebirge Aue, has scored four goals in his 16 caps with the U.S. senior national team.

Despite his success at the club level, he remains focused on his international play, claiming, "It is my goal to take part in the Copa America." At this point, he is a complete shoo-in for this summer's roster because he's currently the only in-form American striker other than Chris Wondolowski.

Should Wood leave Union Berlin for a bigger club? Is his Copa America spot guaranteed?
