Watch USMNT Winger Tyler Boyd Score An Absolute Screamer For Besiktas
Get the best email in soccer.
I will admit it — I tend to get so caught up in the Christian Pulisic and Gio Reyna hype-train that I sometimes overlook the other talented members on the USMNT. Well, New Zealand-born American winger Tyler Boyd just gave me the antidote with a magnificent goal for Besiktas. I will be googling “Tyler Boyd goal vs Trabzonspor” for some time to come.
Sit back, relax and watch an American give one of Turkey’s biggest clubs something to cheer about in its season opener.

Boyd received an honorable mention in The18’s list for the USMNT’s potential starting lineup for 2020. If he keeps scoring goals like this he will definitely see more playing time for the Stars and Stripes. Pulisic and Reyna won’t always be readily available, so it’s good to know that the winger position runs deep on this squad.
Boyd had a relatively quiet season with Besiktas in the 2019-20 campaign. He made 28 appearances in all competitions, netting three goals and one assist. All I’m saying is with this being Besiktas’ first league game, Boyd has technically scored in 100% of the club’s Süper Lig games this season.
Boyd and Beskitas grabbed all three points in the club's opener with a 3-1 victory.
