Josh Sargent’s maturation continues to impress with the American youngster collecting an assist in Werder Bremen’s 4-1 cup win over Heidenheim in the German Cup on Wednesday.

Sargent started and went 90 minutes in second round match as the heavily-favored home side scored four goals in the first 41 minutes.

The 19-year-old from Missouri knocked down a hard short-range pass and drove upfield before cutting a pass into the path of Leonardo Bittencourt.

The assist gives him three to go with a goal in his last five matches, this match being by far the easiest in a brutal run of fixtures for Bremen.

Sargent assisted at the weekend at Bayer Leverkusen. Bremen sits 12th in the Bundesliga with 10 points, and next up are Freiburg, Schalke, Borussia Monchengladbach, and Wolfsburg.
