Josh Sargent has been deserving of a chance to prove to the Werder Bremen coaching staff that he belongs with the first team. Friday saw Sargent come up with the goods for his team, scoring his first Bundesliga goal just a minute into his senior debut.
The 18-year-old U.S. Men’s National Team forward was in the right place at the right time, tapping home a loose ball to ice a 3-1 home victory for Werder Bremen. It was the team’s first victory since October 20th, but most importantly it should very well give Sargent another crack with the first team next weekend at Borussia Dortmund.
Elsewhere, Danny Williams earned his first league start for Huddersfield this campaign despite a 1-0 loss to Arsenal away from home. Tim Ream returned to Fulham’s starting XI but it was to no avail as the Londoners got demolished by Manchester United.
