Video shows Michail Antonio score another absolute wonder goal for Jamaica as West Ham star breaks outside the box duck against USA.
It was the international break David Moyes and West Ham fans had been fearing for their only striker Antonio.
It is the last of the year but one which comes slap bang in the middle of West Ham’s busiest period of a what could be a truly memorable season.
And it has showed.
Antonio scored a brilliant solo goal in Jamaica’s draw with El Salvador last time out, running from the halfway line before dinking over the goalkeeper.
He was at it again on Tuesday night too scoring another absolute wonder goal, this time against the USA.
Video shows Antonio breaking his outside the box goal duck as he rockets an unstoppable drive into the top corner from 30 yards out.
It is a truly world class goal which pulled Jamaica level at 1-1 on the night. And it was significant as it ended a seven-year wait for the striker to score a goal from outside the box.

West Ham fans will be hoping Antonio can come through unscathed when he returns from a 15,000 mile round-trip with the Reggae Boyz before the Hammers embark on a fixture schedule that will see them play 12 games in less than five weeks.
This video shows Antonio’s amazing strike, his second for his country since switching allegiance from England having been continually ignored by Gareth Southgate.
Now the West Ham powerhouse faces a 10-hour flight back to England and a couple of days preparation for West Ham’s game at Wolves on Saturday.
Moyes will be hoping he maintains his brilliant form with West Ham, who can go level on points with leaders Chelsea depending on their result in the lunchtime kick-off at Leicester.
