It’s not crazy to say Josh Sargent has been terrorizing the Regionalliga Nord with Werder Bremen II. The 18-year-old has scored in three-straight games and five times in seven matches, earning a Saturday friendly appearance with the first team to make another statement to Werder Bremen boss Florian Kohfeldt (who’s noticed the goals, you know).

Sargent bagged this goal in a 5-2 win over SV Meppen 1912.

He’s not going to do stuff like this against top-flight defenses, let alone would he have troubled Brazil any more than Tim Weah did on Friday, but man is it good to see the kid keep scoring goals.
