Former USF striker Dom Dwyer made his first appearance for the U.S. men’s national team this afternoon against Ghana. It took just 19 minutes for the brand-new U.S. citizen to score his first international goal, crushing a left-foot volley that was deflected into the air by Jorge Villafana.

Let’s all step back for a second and realize this man is probably playing with Christian Pulisic soon enough on the same team. Anyone’s mouth watering yet?

The USF community collectively lost it as Dwyer pounded the volley home.

Also this tweet is just incredible

Dom had a chance just a few minutes later, but was upended by Ghanaian keeper Richard Ofori Antwi, who was mysteriously only given a yellow card. He also had another chance in the second half, but his low shot was smartly saved by Antwi.

For fans of the USA and USF alike, this is a wonderful moment watching an incredibly talented player, hyped for years, score on his debut. Hopefully it’s only the first of many.
