Club Career

Bobby Wood was born in Hawaii, but grew up in southern California where he starred for the Irvine Strikers. After a tryout in mid-2006, the forward moved to Germany to join the renowned academy of 1860 Munich.

Wood spent time with 1860's U-17 team and began the 2010-11 season with the U-19 team. He quickly found success and was soon moved up to the reserve team, which competes in the fourth-division Regionalliga Sud.

During the German winter break, Wood was informed he would be joining the senior team. He made his first team debut in January 2011, coming on as a sub in a 2.Bundesliga match.

Wood suffered a variety of injury issues in 2011 and 2012. His contract was due to expire in June 2012, but 1860's reserve team manager convinced the club to offer him a reserve team contract while he attempted to recovered from his knee woes. Wood quickly proved himself and moved back into the first team in November 2012.

International Career

Wood was a member of the 2011 U-20 team.

His injuries took him off the US radar for several years, but his return to health at 1860 was enough to earn him a cup of coffee in a friendly against Bosnia & Herzegovina in August 2013.

Conor O'Brien could finally make his Austrian debut for Wiener Neustadt on Saturday.
