Last seen during the MNT’s 1-1 draw with France back in June, 18-year-old Josh Sargent has had a strong start to his competitive tenure at Werder Bremen, leading the club’s reserve side with six goals in 10 matches. Sargent earned his fourth US cap when he came on for Julian Green in the 80th minute of the game against Colombia. Check out the bio page I maintain on Josh’s career for more.
Bobby Wood’s 53rd minute strike against Colombia was his team-leading third of the year and fourth career goal against Top-20 ranked opponents.
Tim Weah’s assist on Wood’s goal made him the third youngest MNT player to record a goal and assist at 18 years, 232 days. He comes in behind only Christian Pulisic (17 years, 349 days) and Juan Agudelo (18 years, 197 days).
