Oh, look: Josh Sargent got proper service and scored. Weird.

The United States men’s national team man was on an island against Canada earlier in the week, but became part of an archipelago as Werder Bremen took a 1-0 home lead over Hertha Berlin at the Weserstadion.

Sargent started the move with a flicked pass to Maximilian Eggestein, then found the cutback offer and put the business end of a 1-2 into the goal via a wicked deflection.

It’s the 19-year-old’s second Bremen goal of the campaign to go with an assist against Borussia Dortmund in late September.
