It’s obvious the player has talent, but we all need to remember he is still very young. Some might say that it’s surprising a relatively unknown player would be selected for the senior USMNT so quickly, but I’m not one of them. Terrance Boyd was on fire for Dortmund’s reserves side, leading the offense scoring 20 goals in 32 games leading the side to promotion.
I’m not surprised, however, that he never made it to the senior Dortmund side as they were busy claiming the domestic and league cup double. It’s hard to imagine Boyd breaking into the line-up with players like Kagawa and Lewandowski ahead of him. But is it really?
Look at Neven Subotic, another former US player now playing for Serbia, he broke into the squad when the talent was just being farmed and Dortmund began their recent run of good form. Subotic benefited from the club moving in a new direction and a vacuum of talent.
Boyd might have benefited from staying with Dortmund, let’s hope his time in Austria is on loan because it appears that Dortmund might be in the market to sell some of their assets as they already have done with Shinji Kagawa after selling him to Manchester United.
Rumors continue to spin around top Bundesliga striker Lewandowski and German youngster Mario Gotze as to their future at the club. But clearly Dortmund are looking to retool for the upcoming Bundesliga season with some new signings in Marco Reus and Leonardo Bittencourt.
The video is Terrence Boyd in a recent friendly where he had two stunning bicycle kicks, one of which ended up in the net. It also features new Roma signing, US International Michael Bradley.
