Here’s a way to earn another start.
American striker Josh Sargent restored Werder Bremen’s early lead on Sunday, getting his first goal of the Bundesliga season at the Weser Stadium.

And what a goal it was, made even more joyous by Sargent’s clever adaptation following a tricky first touch. He juggles around the keeper before finishing and, oh, yes.
Sargent, 19, scored twice in 10 Bundesliga appearances last season, only twice playing more than 30 minutes in a match.
Sunday marked his first start of this season, and the goal has a good chance to go down the match winner after Stephan Lichtsteiner saw red for visiting Augsburg soon after Sargent’s clever finish.
He’ll join the USMNT camp next, having scored twice in seven caps for the full national team.
