Twenty-year-old USMNT forward Josh Sargent shines in Bundesliga play
U.S. Men’s National Team forward Josh Sargent continued his productive start for Bundesliga side Werder Bremen during the weekend.
The 20-year-old recorded his first assist of the campaign, setting up the opening goal of a 3-1 away triumph against Schalke on Saturday. The O’Fallon, Mo. product rose near the penalty spot to nod down a corner kick which strike partner Niclas Füllkrug redirected from close range in the 22nd minute. Füllkrug went onto register a hat-trick.
