Former USF soccer star Dom Dwyer, shaking hands with U.S. Men's National Team coach Bruce Arena, has scored in both his international matches so far.

In an eight-day span, Dom Dwyer concurrently has given the U.S. Men's National Team a jolt, and USF some unexpected cachet.

Dwyer, an offensive dynamo in his lone season (2011) at USF, scored his second goal in as many international contests Saturday during the Americans' 1-all tie with Panama in their CONCACAF Gold Cup opener in Nashville.

An English-born striker who gained U.S. citizenship in March, Dwyer scored last weekend in his international debut -- a 2-1 exhibition win against Ghana. He joined teammate Paul Arriola in scoring goals in his first two international matches, a feat accomplished by nine U.S. players since 1916, according to the Associated Press.

A junior college transfer who tallied 16 goals in 21 matches for the Bulls, Dwyer has a collegiate homecoming of sorts Wednesday, when the U.S. faces Martinique at Raymond James Stadium.
