Bobby Wood added his name to US national team lore on Tuesday evening, as the Hamburg striker fired home a late equalizer to earn the Yanks a nerve-jangling 1-1 draw with Honduras at Estadio Olimpico Metropolitano in San Pedro Sula.
The substitute's late heroics rescued an otherwise painful outing for the USMNT, who turned in a jittery, uneven performance under crushing pressure and trailed most of the game thanks to Houston Dynamo striker Romell Quioto.
Quioto beat US center back Omar Gonzalez just short of the half-hour mark and for most of the ensuing hour, it looked more likely that Los Catrachos would add to their lead than a Yanks comeback.
But with the final minutes ticking away, Wood was the man on the spot deep in the Honduras penalty box after a long-range Kellyn Acosta free kick sparked havoc.
