[U.S. UNDER-23 MEN] Borussia Dortmund striker Terrence Boyd scored a great solo goal three minutes after coming off the bench as the U.S. U-23 national team wrapped up its 10-day training camp in Germany with a 1-1 tie against a Bayer Leverkusen team that featured U.S. international David Yelldell in goal.

In the 72nd minute, Boyd scored on a volley after taking a pass from fellow substitute Mikkel Diskerud for his second goal in as many scrimmages. He also scored in a 3-1 win over a Bochum XI.

“It was a good game in terms of getting a different style of opponent,” said U.S. Soccer youth technical director Claudio Reyna, who was serving as head coach for this camp in place of Caleb Porter, who remained with the University of Akron. “Leverkusen sat back and tried to hit us on the counter. I thought we coped well and defended well in the first half. In the second half, we started to play with a little bit more energy and looked to try to win the game. We unfortunately gave up a goal from a set piece but overall the game was a success.”
