Americans Abroad Weekend Rewind: Sargent, Richards, and more

Josh Sargent made his third-straight start for Werder Bremen this weekend, playing a vital role in the club’s latest win.

Bremen defeated Schalke 1-0 in Gelsenkirchen on Saturday with Sargent playing 70 minutes. The 20-year-old didn’t record a shot on goal, but he won 10 duels from his striker position, while also winning two aerial battles and making two recoveries. Sargent has continued to start for Florian Kohfeldt’s side during this crucial stretch of matches, which now sees Bremen three points from safety. Up next for Bremen is a midweek match with Eintracht Frankfurt on Wednesday, which a lopsided win for the hosts would propel them out of the bottom three.

Chris Richards made the most of his return to 3. Liga action this weekend, scoring an 89th minute winning goal in a 2-1 win over Ingolstadt. Richards played 90 minutes for Bayern Munich II, helping his team win their fourth-consecutive win in league play. The young centerback has four goals this season and will continue to earn minutes for Bayern II with 10 matches remaining.

Julian Green started for Greuther Furth, playing 84 minutes in a 1-1 draw with Darmstadt. Green completed 87% of his passes for Furth in his attacking position, while also winning four duels and making five recoveries. However, it was another missed opportunity for Furth in the race for promotion from the 2. Bundesliga, with the club now sitting 11 points from third place Hamburg.

  1. I didnt know Sargent was in the game for the first third of the game.
    He did nothing much after that either.

  2. Mike Lansing and Horsens match is on ESPN+ at 9:00 central, but he hasn’t played since being red carded in mid-October.

  3. Reyna for Dortmund had a shot on target for just inside the far post that was diverted by a finger tip save by the Paderborn GK. He was also the victim of a couple of very hard tackle. I thought McKennie looked pretty good, but was withdrawn , according to the commentators, because of the manager’s concern that he would get a 2nd yellow, leaving Schalke a man down. Can’t remember the last time when two games on simultaneously from a top European league had an American starting on all 4 teams, as was the case Saturday. Looking forward to seeing Adams on Monday.

    • Strange Gary that you could draw that conclusion about Mckennie, and then proceed to tell us that you weren’t actually watching. Thank you for making us all dumber.

      Wagner took Wessie off after he absolutely destroyed Osaka in a 50-50, while being on that yellow. The game was so absolutely putrid that through 50 minutes, which is when it occurred, you could argue it was the highlight of the game. Both those teams are playing some of the worst ball in the league, and have been. But Gary Page, ladies and gentlemen

      • And how did you conclude that I wasn’t watching? I saw everything I described. Why the antagonism toward me? I was switching back and forth between the 2 simultaneous games. I didn’t say anything about the quality of the Schalke game, just about how I thought McKennie played. I don’t like it when people attack me for things I never said or wrote.

    • I was trying to figure out why he didn’t think you’d watched it too. Read your post like five times. Wes subbed off well before Gio came.
