American forward Haji Wright scored his ninth goal of the season, spurring Antalyaspor’s comeback from a two-goal deficit in a 4-2 win over visiting Fatih Karagumrukon Sunday in the Turkish Super League.
Wright scored from 6 yards in the 35th minute on a diving header from Bunyamin Balci’s cross.
Wright, a 24-year-old from Los Angeles, is competing with Jesus Ferreira, Ricardo Pepi, Josh Sargent and Jordan Pejok for forward spots on the U.S. World Cup roster.
Antalyaspor plays Pendikspor in a Turkish Cup fourth-round match on Wednesday, the day U.S. coach Gregg Berhalter announces his 26-man squad.
