“Josh Sargent’s time with Werder Bremen’s U23s is over” – Florian Kohfeldt

Sargent joined Bremen from the IMG Academy in Bradenton, Florida final January, but was only eligible to play for Die Grün-Weißen’s initially team on turning eighteen in February. If 6 goals and two assists in 10 appearances with the U23s hinted at his expertise, then his goal in the USMNT’s 1-1 draw against Peru on Wednesday appear to have eliminated any uncertainties.

“This interval in which [Sargent] plays completely in the U23s is over,” stated Kohfeldt of the player who now has two goals in just five senior global caps. “He appears to be like to be a very long way further than that now.”

Sargent, who is just the 3rd player immediately after Borussia Dortmund’s Christian Pulisic and New England Revolution’s Juan Agudelo to score 2 times for the US ahead of his 19th birthday, could element as shortly as Bayer Leverkusen’s excursion to Bremen on Matchday 9.

“It was a nice goal,” concluded Kohfeldt. “I’ll be content to have him again right here.
