Family matters: Husband joins wife scoring for US soccer

Dom Dwyer volleyed in a go-ahead goal in the 19th minute of his international debut, ran to the corner flag and did a double back flip that would make a gymnast proud.

Back home in Missouri, wife Sydney Leroux was overjoyed.

The goal made Dwyer and Leroux the first husband-and-wife couple to score for the United States, which beat Ghana 2-1 on Saturday in an exhibition ahead of the CONCACAF Gold Cup.

"I'm very proud of Sydney and what she's achieved and still achieving in the national team," Dwyer said. "I've got quite a few caps to catch up to her, and a few goals, too."
