It hasn’t always been easy for San Jose Earthquakes midfielder Tommy Thompson to find a regular spot in his side’s starting lineup, but if he keeps finishing off chances like he did in a friendly Saturday, that may change.
Thompson, who has started 13 games for his side over the past two seasons, turned on the class for a slick finish in a match against USL side Reno 1868 FC.
OK, TOMMY!! #Quakes74 take the lead from a sneaky finish by Thompson!

Goals like that are sure to catch the eye of Earthquakes boss Dominic Kinnear as the former U.S. youth international looks to turn 2017 into a breakout campaign.
