USA v Puerto Rico HIGHLIGHT: Hamburg striker Bobby Wood doubles the lead

Bobby Wood can't stop scoring.

Trevor Ruszkowski-USA TODAY Sports

It doesn't matter what jersey he's wearing, Bobby Wood is on a hot streak right now. His goal put the United States men's national team up 2-0 in their friendly match against Puerto Rico.

Paul Arriola played a through ball, and Wood evaded two defenders and finished past the Puerto Rico keeper.

Here's the highlight:

Wood has had a career year, scoring 17 goals in the 2. Bundesliga and setting the American scoring record in Germany. Recently, he transferred to Bundesliga club Hamburger SV from Union Berlin.

Wood began his professional career with 1860 Munich before moving to Berlin. He made his senior national team debut in 2013 after spending time with the under-20 and under-23 national teams.

Today is his 17th cap with the national team, and this is his fifth goal.

The Hawaii native was selected for the final Copa America Centenario roster and looks to feature heavily during the tournament.


The U.S. is currently playing a 4-4-2:

Goalkeeper: Brad Guzan

Defenders: Deandre Yedlin, Michael Orozco, John Anthony Brooks, Tim Ream

Midfielders: Perry Kitchen, Danny Williams, Alejandro Bedoya, Alfredo Morales

Strikers: Bobby Wood, Paul Arriola
