Josh Sargent will look to continue his strong run of form for Werder Bremen this weekend against a familiar face, who he will also be seeing in upcoming U.S. Men’s National Team camp.
Sargent will go head-to-head with international teammate John Brooks on Saturday as Werder Bremen hosts Wolfsburg in the final league match of March. The 21-year-old forward has scored in three of his last four outings for Bremen, but should find this weekend’s test tough against one of the stingier defensive units in Germany.
Brooks has been a leader in Oliver Glasner’s backline this season, making 23 league appearances to date and registering two goals. The veteran center back has helped Wolfsburg to a current third place spot and to an immaculate defensive record of only 21 goals conceded through 25 matches (tied for first in the Bundesliga). It will be the start of a busy week for both Brooks and Sargent, who will then head to USMNT camp for the first time in 2021.
