USMNT forward Josh Sargent nets first goal of the season in Bundesliga play
Like many good strikers, Josh Sargent knows how to make the most of an opportunity.
The U.S. Men’s National Team forward certainly did that for Werder Bremen, connecting for his side’s lone goal in a 1-1 draw at Eintracht Frankfurt in Bundesliga action on Saturday.
Sargent gave Bremen the lead in the 51st minute with his first goal of the Bundesliga campaign and seventh of his career. Doing well to stay onside, the O’Fallon, Mo. product latched onto a pass on the left flank and raced in solo on goalkeeper Kevin Trapp before neatly finishing with a right-footed effort inside the near post.
It’s his seventh career @Bundesliga_DE goal.
Great finish Josh!

The 20-year-old came close early on, only to have his chance on the left side of the box put out for a corner kick by Frankfurt ‘keeper Kevin Trapp in the second minute.
After Eintracht Frankfurt equalized in the 65th minute, Sargent had another chance to restore the lead in but rifled his 72nd minute attempt straight to Trapp. The U.S. striker, who also received a yellow card early in the second half, had two of Bremen’s four shots on goal.
