Josh Sargent put in a heck of a performance during the CRB U-19 Champions Trophy tournament, and now the forward has earned a little recognition for his effort.
The U.S. Under-20 Men’s National Team forward scored three goals for Werder Bremen throughout the club’s run, leading the way in a third-place finish in the U-19 tournament. Sargent’s efforts earned him honors as Best Striker of the tournament.
