American striker Josh Sargent made the most of his first start of the season, scoring a brilliant goal for Werder Bremen against Augsburg at Wester Stadium.

After a ball over the top from the midfield beat Augsburg's back line, Sargent connected on a first touch to bring the ball back to his chest before chipping the goalkeeper for the superb goal. The score gave Werder Bremen an early 2–1 lead.

Sargent, now 19, became the youngest U.S. player to score at the FIFA U-20 World Cup in 2017 at just 17 years old. He trained with the senior national team this summer and played the full 90 minutes during the USMNT's 1–0 exhibition loss to Jamaica in June. He was left off of the team's roster for the Concacaf Gold Cup but has been welcomed back into the fold for the September friendlies vs. Mexico and Uruguay.

Sargent scored twice in 10 Bundesliga appearances last season.
