    The former NZ U-20 and '94 Wellington Phoenix man has an American mum:

    He was born in New Zealand to an American mother and New Zealand father and lived in the USA from shortly after his birth until he was 10.

    Boyd has lived in New Zealand since then, but has told The World Game in the wake of Phoenix's 3-1 win over Western Sydney Wanderers on Wednesday he is undecided about whether to commit to the Kiwis for national team selection or gauge whether there may be interest from the USA.

    Do we have room for another T. Boyd on the squad?

    It's always good to have depth.

    He has played in the U20 World Cup in 2013, so he is provisionally cap-tied to NZ. And he has one senior cap.

    Sounds like he's just trying to make noise to get New Zealand's attention for more playing time.

    That's likeliest, since (at least as of the January article) he's not been contacted by US Soccer.

    And considering he made his debut for NZ in a friendly about two months after this article was published, mission accomplished.

    Using your dual nationality to publically put pressure on a federation for a international callup is actually proving to be an effective strategy in many countries.

    That's too bad, really.

    TIGHT TUSSLE: Phoenix player Tyler Boyd and Adelaide United's Osama Malik contest possession in their opening round FFA Cup fixture.

    Newcastle United were pushed hard by Wellington Phoenix but the Premier League side were too slick in the end as they wrapped up a 1-0 pre-season friendly win at Westpac Stadium.... Both sides created chances from the outset, Tyler Boyd lashing an early strike on the turn into the side netting for the Phoenix.

    Anthony Hudson's tenure in charge of the All Whites got off to a shaky start this morning as New Zealand slumped to a 3-1 loss against Uzbekistan in Tashkent.... Hudson used a 4-3-3 formation with Wood the focal point of a three-pronged attack, but Tyler Boyd and Kosta Barbarouses were largely anonymous in the wide positions....
    "We didn't come here to do anything else than to get a result," Hudson said.
    "We've come here today and we've had a good idea of where we need to be when we come to our qualifiers. Uzbekistan is always a team who are knocking on the door in terms of qualification. We always knew it was going to be a tough game. Tonight has given me a good idea of individual players and we're we are at as a group right now."

    Without doubt the midfield has been massively bolstered after an injury crisis exposed a lack of depth last season.
    It appears players like Kenny Cunningham, Louis Fenton, Vince Lia, Tyler Boyd and Matthew Ridenton will have to force their way in from the bench this season.
    "We came up against a very good Wellington Phoenix side and they are going to be tough this year," said Sydney coach Graham Arnold after Friday's draw.
    "Ernie has recruited well, they have some very good players in midfield with good mobility."

    On his 20th birthday (12/31/14), Boyd came off the bench in the 70th to score the game-winner (1:58) & the nail in the coffin (3:08) at Adelaide United (opens with a bonus cameo by Adelaide's mystery YA Captain):


    2 more braces with the reserves in ASB competition vs. Hawke's Bay United (12/7/14) and Southern United (2/14/15).

    Wellington Phoenix confirm striker Tyler Boyd will join Portuguese club Vitoria SC at conclusion of A-League season
    Boyd, 20, has signed a four-year contract with Vitoria SC, which is fifth midway though this season's Portugal Primeira Liga...

    Phoenix coach Ernie Merrick understood Boyd's desire to move offshore at the end of the season.

    "We have known for some time that Tyler wanted to play in Europe and I wish him all the best for the future," Merrick said.
