COLOGNE, Germany - Bobby Wood scored a late goal for the second time in six days to give the United States its first victory at a European soccer power, lifting the Americans to a 2-1 win at World Cup champion Germany in an exhibition game Wednesday.

The 22-year-old from Hawaii entered in the 74th minute and scored in the 87th, swiveling and taking a touch before a 23-yard shot that went on a hop past goalkeeper Ron-Robert Zieler.

Wood scored in the 90th minute Friday to give Americans a 4-3 win over the Netherlands in Amsterdam.

The U.S. had lost its previous two games against the Germans in Germany, 4-2 in 2002 and 4-1 in 2006.

Mario Goetze put the hosts ahead in the 12th minute, but Mix Diskerud tied the score in the 41st after trapping a precise long ball from Michael Bradley.

U.S. coach Jurgen Klinsmann, who sang both national anthems before kickoff, won against the country he led to the 1990 World Cup title as a player and coached to third place in 2006.
