Americans Abroad Weekend Rewind: Siebatcheu, Sargent, and more


Theoson-Jordon Siebatcheu may not have played a game for the U.S. Men’s National Team yet in his career, but the 22-year-old could very well see his stock rise after a strong performance this weekend.

Siebatcheu scored a brace for Rennes on Saturday in a 4-0 victory over Nimes, while also recording an assist. With his team sitting on a 2-0 lead heading into the second-half, Siebatcheu scored on a pair of chances in a 20-minute span after halftime. Both finishes came from inside of the box, and has the French-American sitting on four goals in all competitions this season.

Rennes’ victory jumped them into eighth place and will surely see Siebatcheu return to the team’s starting XI following the winter break.

Elsewhere, Josh Sargent recorded his second Bundesliga goal of the season despite a road loss on Saturday. John Brooks assisted in Wolfsburg’s victory over Augsburg while Fabian Johnson returned to the Borussia Monchengladbach starting XI at Borussia Dortmund.

Ethan Horvath earned his fourth league victory on Sunday in a lopsided win over Antwerp. Sergino Dest had an impact in Jong Ajax’s league victory while Tim Ream started for Fulham.

  1. This is very promising as our young midfield and striker core are developing at an awesome rate
    Theoson Siebatcheu ⚽⚽

    Josh Sargent

    Haji Wright

    Timothy Weah (trying to breaking into PSG!!!)




    And the list goes on…… this point COACHING seems to be all that is left to be a force to be reckoned with (for teams outside the FIFA top 10!!!! ??

  2. Not a good first half of the season for CP but the winter break could help him where ever he winds up if he stays or leaves. Sancho might cool off now that that teams will be more prepared for him. On a brighter note Sargent and Wright getting more mins is likely which is good news for the USMNT and hopefully Adams can break in as well. Hope Mckinnie is played in a position that suits him rather than to far up the pitch. So second half of season should be interesting in the bundesliga. Any thought?

    • When PSG signed Choupo Martin at the end of the August window Weah lost any hope for PT. Beating out a guy with 50 Combined Bundesliga and EPL goals that starred for the manager at Mainz is a bridge to far.

    • It has also been reported there are multiple clubs that want him on loan so he said he would go in the Jan window

  3. Sergino Dest is looking good, check out bleacher reports highlights. Hope he can make first team debut next season if not sooner. Showed very well at u20 also
