New England Revolution designated player and striker Jerry Bengtson is on a hot streak for his national team. Check out the highlights of the goal he scored for Honduras last night, the winner in a 1-0 win over Cuba in CONCACAF World Cup Qualifying.

Jerry Bengtson has been on an absolute tear for his country since signing with the New England Revolution a few months back. Last night at Estadio Olimpico Metropolitano in San Pedro Sula, Honduras, Bengtson was at it again, heading home a cross from Roger Espinoza at the far post to give Los Catrachos a 1-0 win.

The goal was Bengtson's second in qualifying for World Cup 2014; his first came last week against Cuba in Cuba. After Tuesday night's result, Honduras sits in a rather advantageous position in Group C. Panama is ahead of them with a perfect 3-0-0 record and nine points, while Canada is level with Honduras on points with seven, but behind the Central Americans on goal differential. Cuba is in last place with zero points, having failed to score a goal yet in the tournament.

Since joining New England, Bengtson has represented his country in the Olympics, in a friendly against Boca Juniors, and in these last two World Cup qualifiers. In a total of seven national team appearances (two of which are considered competitive senior internationals), Bengtson has scored six goals (two in competitive senior internationals). It's safe to say that Jerry's on a pretty good run right now.
