Dom Dwyer scored another impressive selfie, taking one in the White House after meeting Barack Obama.

The striker - who grew up in King's Lynn - met the world's most powerful man in honour of his team's league success in the MLS last season.

Dwyer was able to shake the President's hand, before taking a squad selfie inside the Commander in Chief's home.

His Sporting Kansas City team won the championship last December after a penalty shootout win over Real Salt Lake.

While Dwyer was not even eligible to vote for Barack Obama in the last elections, an audience with the President put a broad smile on the striker's face.

He told MLSsoccer.com: 'I've had my eyes set on it and it's up there in my mind. So I guess we'll see how I progress in the next few years, and hopefully I will make the grade.

'I'm on track, Valentines Day 2017 is when I should be eligible for my passport, so that's definitely a day I'm looking forward to.'

Opportunities past Dwyer by after he was released from the Norwich City academy programme, with injuries taking its toll on the striker.

He has excelled over in America however, and in the 2014 season has scored 19 goals in 25 games.
