USMNT abroad: Josh Sargent scores stunner for Werder Bremen

Josh Sargent scored a fantastic goal for Werder Bremen in Bundesliga action this weekend. This and more in this week’s version of USMNT abroad.

Goals rained down left and right for United States Men’s National Team players this week. The most spectacular of the goals was scored by Josh Sargent.

The Werder Bremen striker blasted a shot from outside the 18-yard box past the goalkeeper. It ended a goal drought that has lasted almost four months for the young USMNT player who is still working his way back from injury. Bremen ended up getting a point from the match as they drew 2-2 with Hertha Berlin.

Weston McKennie joined Sargent on the scoresheet with a goal for Schalke in a 1-1 draw with Hoffenheim. It was his first goal in 20 appearances this season. He doesn’t score very often but Matt Miazga found the back of the net for Reading in a 3-1 win over Birmingham City. It was his second goal in the EFL Championship this season.

The goals didn’t stop there, however, as Aron Johannsson scored for Hammarby in a 4-0 rout of Sundsvall. And in Denmark, Christian Cappis scored for Hobro in their 1-1 draw with Esbjerg, while Joel Sonora was on the mark for Arsenal de Sarandi in a 4-0 win against Aldosivi.
