USMNT abroad: Sargent scores his first Bundesliga goal of the season

Werder Bremen forward Josh Sargent scored his first Bundesliga goal

Josh Sargent opened his goal account in the 2020/21 Bundesliga campaign on Saturday. The Werder Bremen striker scored his club’s lone goal in a 1-1 draw against Eintracht Frankfurt. Sargent had scored in the DFB-Pokal in September for Bremen but had not found the back of the net since then.

The goal comes ahead of the upcoming friendly match for the United States Men’s National Team on November 12th against Wales. Sargent’s goal will certainly help his chances of being the starting striker that Gregg Berhalter selects for the match. The 20-year-old has five goals in 12 career USMNT appearances.

Weston McKennie registers first Serie A assist

It was the first career Serie A assist for Weston McKennie on Sunday against Spezia Calcio. The USMNT midfielder set up Alvaro Morata to score the first goal of the match as Juventus went on to win 4-1. McKennie made his first Serie A appearances since his absence due to testing positive for the Coronavirus.

McKennie wasn’t the only U.S. player dishing out assists over the weekend. Richard Ledezma picked up an assist for PSV Eindhoven in his first-ever appearance for the Dutch club’s first team. He set up Ryan Thomas’s goal that made it a 3-0 advantage for PSV. The final score was 4-0 as PSV won comfortably against ADO Den Haag.

Sabbi and Green score

Emmanuel Sabbi registered his third goal of the season for Odense in Denmark’s top flight. Sabbi scored the match-winner against AC Horsens on Sunday. In Germany, Julian Green found the back of the net for Greuther Furth in 2.Bundesliga action. The 25-year-old scored his club’s first goal of the match en route to a 4-1 victory over Hannover 96.
