The 26-year-old Honululu-born striker ran onto a flicked through ball and held off a mark to blast the ball home after just 20 seconds on Sunday at Borussia-Park.

The goal is Wood’s third for Hannover in Bundesliga play, and comes in his sixth-straight start.

Hannover is bidding to climb out of the relegation places, but there’s some bad news: Thorgan Hazard equalized for the hosts within six minutes of Wood’s opener.
