The Seattle Sounders sniper found the the back of the net on two headers, including one in the 91st minute, to save the U.S. men's national team blushes and their Hexagonal round hopes of World Cup qualifying, and defeat Antigua and Barduda 2-1.
The USMNT faces Guatemala in this round's final game on Tuesday in Kansas City (6pm CT on ESPN). A draw and one point should see the U.S. through.
Analysis from some of American soccer's best writers:
Grant Wahl (Sports Illustrated) - "U.S. can breathe easier after win against Antigua"
Matt Doyle (MLS Soccer) - "Three Things We Learned from a Terrible Trip to the Carribbean"
John Godfrey (American Soccer Now) - "U.S. Wins, but there is no joy in Mudville"
Brian Sciaretta (New York Times) - "Late Goal Eases Pressure on U.S. in World Cup Qualifying"
