Americans Abroad Weekend Preview: Sargent, Pulisic to meet in first Bundesliga showdown

By

Josh Sargent recently became the latest member of the U.S. Men’s National Team to make his Bundesliga debut. The 18-year-old kicked off his first appearance with a bang and will now meet a familiar foe this weekend.

Sargent and Werder Bremen will aim to follow up last weekend’s victory with a trip to Christian Pulisic and Borussia Dortmund on Saturday. The duo are two of many young faces with the USMNT but will look to continue to grow their games abroad. It will also be the first-ever meeting between Sargent and Pulisic in the Bundesliga, should they both feature.

Elswhere, Danny Williams and Huddersfield Town face DeAndre Yedlin and Newcastle United. Tim Ream will encounter his third London Derby of the season in all competitions as Fulham face West Ham United at Craven Cottage. Geoff Cameron headlines the EFL Championship action this weekend with QPR hosting Middlesbrough.

Bobby Wood faces a tough test against Bayern Munich, while John Brooks returns from suspension for Wolfsburg on Friday. Ethan Horvath continues to start for Club Brugge and will face a road match this weekend. Jonathan Amon returned to league action a week ago, and now will seek a start for Nordsjaelland.
