The 21-year-old made his first appearance of the season after undergoing meniscus surgery that ended his season earlier this year. Amon made his impact felt as a second-half substitute and scored the goal to beat Randers in dramatic fashion.

Jonathan Amon made his USMNT debut in a friendly against Peru back in 2018, a year to the day after making his professional debut with Nordsjaelland. The South Carolina-born winger scored six goals in 27 appearances (all competitions) last season.
