American forward Jonathan Amon broke into the FC Nordsjælland first team back in November and quickly made an impact scoring a goal in his first month. After making only one appearance over the past two months, Amon showed zero signs of rust on Sunday afternoon. The 18-year-old netted his second senior goal in the team’s 3-1 loss to Superliagen leaders Brondby. A fast break by the visitors in the 16th minute was finished off by Amon who slotted into the bottom-left corner for a 1-0 Nordsjælland lead. The league leaders flexed their muscles however and rolled off three goals in the final 70 + minutes to earn the three points. For Amon, it is definitely a confidence building performance after grabbing his first start since Dec. 10th, 2017. Now, the 18-year-old will hope for continued playing time in hopes to build off of today’s outing.
