Ghana's No. 1

Watch: USMNT forward Sargent scores first two Premier League goals for Norwich City

Published on: 21 January 2022

Josh Sargent's first Premier League goal took a while to arrive, but it proved to be worth the wait.

The U.S. international forward scored with an improvised flicked volley finish to give Norwich City a 1-0 lead in a crucial clash against Watford on Friday, and then doubled his tally with a towering header later in the second half.

Sargent's goals came just minutes after he was left off the U.S. men's national team roster for the team's upcoming World Cup qualifiers.

Sargent's first Premier league goals came in his 19th league appearance for the Canaries, who are aiming to escape relegation in their first season after promotion from the Championship.

The 21-year-old moved from Werder Bremen ahead of the season and had previously opened his account for Norwich with a brace in the Carabao Cup against Bournemouth in August.

Ahead of Friday's game Sargent had not scored since that double, a dry run that has seen him fall out of the USMNT picture at least on a temporary basis.

With his goals on Friday, Sargent (21 years and 335 days) became third-youngest Amercian to score in the Premier League, after Jozy Altidore (20y 92d) and Christian Pulisic (21y 38d).
