Josh Gatt scratched from U.S. World Cup qualifying squad; video of Terrence Boyd’s goals; Jamaica’s roster

*Josh Gatt was on the U.S. roster one minute, off it the next. The 21-year-old Michigan attacker who plays for Molde in Norway was scratched shortly after being named Sunday because he suffered a hamstring injury in the 64th minute of Sunday’s league match at Brann. So Juergen Klinsmann’s roster stands at 24 for World Cup qualifiers against Jamaica on Friday in Kingston (8 p.m. ET, beIN Sport) and next Tuesday in Columbus (8 p.m., ESPN2).

*American forward Terrence Boyd, 21, scored twice for Rapid Vienna on Sunday, increasing his Austrian Bundesliga total to four in six appearance and six in all competititions. Video of his goals in the 12th and 66th minutes against Mattersburg:
