Josh Sargent scored for the United States over the international break, and he didn’t wait long to score today for Werder Bremen. The 19-year-old striker scored the opening goal in the 7th minute for Bremen against Hertha Berlin today. After a nice give-and-go with Maximiliano Eggestein, Sargent took a shot from the top of the box. It deflected off a Berlin defender past the goalkeeper, but it was still a nice finish from the teenager for the goal.

It was the 2nd goal of the season for Josh Sargent, who looks to be gaining some confidence in his game. He also scored for the United States against Cuba last Friday, his 3rd international goal, and he played all 180 minutes for the USMNT in CONCACAF Nations League matches against Cuba and Canada. He’s hoping to take that experience and factor more into the starting XI for Bremen.

Werder Bremen is currently up 1-0 on Hertha Berlin in the 2nd half.
