In the friendly.

Tim Ream, playing at left back, scored his first national team and second career goal in the 20th minute of the United States men's national team's friendly against Puerto Rico.

He cleaned up Alfredo Morales' rebound with a perfectly placed finish.

Here's the goal:

Ream, a 28-year old midfielder/defender, currently plays his club soccer at Fulham, making 18 league appearances this season. He moved to Fulham after beginning his professional career with the New York Red Bulls and Bolton Wanderers. Ream was named Bolton Wanderers Player of the Year for the 2013-2014 and 2014-2015 seasons.

The St. Louis native played his youth soccer with St. Louis Scott Gallagher and spent four years at Saint Louis University.

Ream earned his first national team cap in 2010. Today's match against Puerto Rico is his 21st cap.
