Boyd scores for Rapid Vienna in Europa League triumph

The U.S. national team striker scored his fourth goal of the Europa League campaign as the Austrian side secured a 2-1 win over FC Thun.
Terrence Boyd hasn't let his opportunity to shine on the European stage go to waste.

The U.S. national team striker scored in the 17th minute of Rapid Vienna's 2-1 win over Swiss side FC Thun in Europa League action Thursday. It was Boyd's fourth strike in seven Europa League matches this season for the Austrian club.

At 1-1-3, Rapid is one point behind Dynamo Kiev for second place in Group G. The teams wrap the group stage Dec. 12 in Kiev.

Boyd, who came off the bench for the USA in friendlies this month against Scotland and Austria, will next have a chance to add to his season tally with Rapid on Sunday in a league match against FC Wacker Tirol.
