A new USMNT star
Only recently making his USMNT debut under Bruce Arena, 26-year-old Dwyer has already scored two goals in three appearances for the Stars and Stripes, once against Ghana and once against Panama in the 2017 CONCACAF Gold Cup.
A game changing signing
All the best from Orlando City UK!
Born in Cuckfield, West Sussex, Dom Dwyer has that extra allure of being British born!
Now a United States international having been granted citizenship in March 2017, we wish Dom all the very best and his embarks on this exciting chapter of his career back in The City Beautiful!
We simply cannot wait to see that trademark somersault celebration in the colours of our club!
Married to talented USWNT star Sydney Leroux of course, naturally the rumours regarding her whereabouts will now enter overdrive!
*Cough, Orlando Pride!
