Five Things to Know About U-20 MNT Forward Josh Sargent

With his arrival to the Men’s National Team, 17-year-old Josh Sargent is the first U.S. player to receive call-ups from the U-17, U-20 and senior MNT in the same year. Here are five things you should know about the young striker who has added his name to U.S. Soccer’s history books. 

St. Louis Bred

Hailing from the St. Louis suburb of O’Fallon, Josh Sargent made early plans when it came to soccer. According to his mother Liane, the future U.S. forward learned how to kick a ball at age three and began telling friends and family that he was going to be a professional soccer player one day.

The soccer-rich environment of St. Louis certainly helped nurture those ambitions, but they were cultivated by his family as well. Both Liane and his father Jeff played collegiately, while his two sisters are also following in his footsteps playing the game.

Sargent follows a long line of talent that suited up for U.S. Soccer Development Academy powerhouse St. Louis Scott Gallagher-Missouri, including current MNT defender Tim Ream, assistant coach Pat Noonan and former U.S. international Taylor Twellman.

Along with having a soccer family, Sargent credits the players and staff at SLSG for helping him reach the U.S. Youth National Team setup.

“It has been great these past few years,” Sargent told ussoccer.com in October 2016. “Playing in the Development Academy has really improved my game and the coaches know what they’re talking about. The coaches are great guys. They’ve not only taught me how to be a better soccer player but how to become a better person overall. They are the type of people that will take care of you, mentor you, and show you what to do and how to do it.”

U.S. Youth National Teams

Having first appeared at a U-14 Training Camp in 2013, Sargent progressed on to the U-15 level where he notably took part in an international training camp in England in 2015.

Towards the end of that year, Sargent played for the rising U-15 Boys National Team at the 2015 Nike International Friendlies and then joined the U-17 MNT Residency Program. Prior to the 2017 CONCACAF U-17 Championship in April, he amassed 14 goals and seven assists in 29 international matches, including four goals and two assists during three matches as the U.S. won the 2016 Nike Friendlies.

Sargent captained the U-17 MNT at the 2017 CONCACAF U-17 Championship, racking up five goals and two assists in five games as the U.S. finished runners-up in the tournament and qualified for October’s World Cup in India. Sargent particularly impressed during the USA's 4-3 comeback win against Mexico during the group stage, tallying two goals, one of which made that night's SportsCenter Top 10.

U-20 MNT

Days after helping the U.S. qualify for the 2017 FIFA U-17 World Cup, Sargent was named to Tab Ramos' final roster for the 2017 FIFA U-20 World Cup in Korea Republic. With the chance to become just the second player to appear in both U-17 and U-20 World Cup events during the same year, Sargent picked up where he left off, tallying two goals to lead the comeback in the USA's 3-3 draw with Ecuador to open proceedings in Korea.

At 17 years, 91 days, Sargent became the youngest player in U.S. history to score and just the sixth U.S. player to record a multi-goal game at the event.

Three days later, the 17-year-old was on target again, tallying what would stand as the game-winner in the 34th minute of the USA's 1-0 victory against Senegal.

Sargent then recorded the first goal in the U-20 MNT's 6-0 Round of 16 win against New Zealand. With the strike, he took his tournament total to four goals, tying Taylor Twellman (1999), Eddie Johnson (2003) and Jozy Altidore (2007) for most by a U.S. player at a single FIFA U-20 World Cup tournament. 

U-17 World Cup

After his stellar run at the U-20 World Cup, Sargent wore the captain’s armband for the U-17s at the 2017 World Cup. He continued his impressive 2017 in India, spearheading a lethal American attack. Opening the tournament against the hosts, Sargent opened the floodgates for the USA, earning and converting a 30th minute penalty kick to put the Red, White and Blue on the board in what would become a 3-0 win. A victory in the next match against Ghana punched the Americans’ ticket to the knockout round.

The Round of 16 saw an onslaught from the USA offense, as the U-17s took down Paraguay 5-0. Sargent added a goal and assisted on a hat trick from Tim Weah as well as a score from Andrew Carleton, the other two-thirds of the U-17s dangerous attacking trio.

In the quarterfinal, the U.S. fell to eventual champion England 3-1, but Sargent’s 72nd-minute strike gave him seven career goals in Youth World Cups, tying Freddy Adu’s mark for the most in U.S. Soccer history. 

Sargent is continuing to make history with his current call-up to the senior MNT’s November camp. He’s now the first player to ever to participate in the U-17, U-20 and senior MNT in the same year. 

Bundesliga Bound

Sargent’s play for the U-17 and U-20 MNT put him on the radar for more than a few professional clubs. On Sept. 20, German club Werder Bremen officially announced their plans to sign the American teenager when he turns 18 in February 2018. During a U-17 World Cup training camp, Sargent spoke about his plans to sign with the Bundesliga club:

“I am really excited to announce that when I turn 18, I will be signing with Werder Bremen of the Bundeslig. It’s been very fun, from the very start, ever since I’ve been in Saint Louis. My coaching staff and parents have been very supportive of what I’m doing and I’m very excited to be able to sign with a team like Bremen in the near future. I think Bremen knows that day-in and day-out I’ll give it my all and do everything I can to win them a trophy.”

Sargent joins a strong contingent of young U.S. players who have started their careers in Germany, including current senior team midfielder Christian Pulisic (Borussia Dortmund) as well as the Schalke trio of Weston McKennie, Nicholas Taitague and Haji Wright (currently on loan with Sandhausen).

Five Things to Know About U-17 MNT Striker Tim Weah

U.S. U-17 MNT forward Tim Weah has a famous name, but made waves for himself by becoming the first U.S. player to score a hat trick during the Knockout Round of a FIFA World Cup during the side's 5-0 Round of 16 victory against Paraguay on Oct. 16 in New Dehli, India.

Here are five things you should know about the U-17 MNT and Paris Saint-Germain striker:

A traveling man

Tim Weah (Way-Uh) was born on Feb. 22, 2000 in Brooklyn, New York, where he lived until he was four in the town of Valley Stream. His next four years were spent in Pembroke Pines, a suburb of Fort Lauderdale, Fla., where the family stayed for a short while before moving back to New York, this time to Queens. In August of 2014, Tim left the family nest for France, where he joined the Academy of famed French club Paris Saint-Germain.

In addition to his worldly travels, Tim is fluent in French and English, and understands Italian and Dutch as well.

The son of George Weah

If the last name looked familiar, that’s because it is. Tim’s father George was the best soccer player in the world in 1995, winning the Ballon d'Or and FIFA World Player of the Year while with AC Milan, although he spent the first half of the year with Paris Saint-Germain. In 1996, Weah finished second to Brazilian footballer Ronaldo, keeping him from earning back-to-back honors. George’s sweep of the awards in 1995 made him the first African player to win both awards. In 1996, he was named the African Player of the Century and was given FIFA’s Fair Play Award. Despite his success on the field, George was never able to qualify for a World Cup with his country, Liberia.

Following his playing career, Weah became politically active in his home nation, running for president in 2005. Though he lost that bid, Weah was elected to the Liberian Senate in 2015 and is in the midst of a second campaign for the nation's highest office, in which he now faces a run-off election on Nov. 7

The musical artist

Aside from soccer, Tim’s biggest passion is music, specifically writing lyrics. In his apartment, Weah has his own microphone set up, where he crafts beats, jots down lyrics and records it all on his computer. Weah is an aspiring Trap Soul artist, which requires a combination of singing and rap. Since he started getting serious at the beginning of 2017, Weah has recorded six songs. His end goal is to one day produce his own music and open studios in Liberia and New York.

How he got to Paris Saint-Germain

From the time he could walk (and kick a soccer ball), Weah was first exposed to the sport at Rosedale Soccer Club in Queens a small club and facility owned by his uncle, Michael Duncan. When his family moved to Florida, Tim played recreational soccer in Pembroke Pines before his parents found the right challenge for him at West Pines United F.C. At a young age, Weah played at West Pines, where he met and played several 3v3 tournaments with current U-17 CONCACAF Championship teammate, George Acosta.

When he was nine, the family moved back to New York where Weah played on an official Rosedale team. Upon turning 10, Weah switched to U.S. Soccer Development Academy club BW Gottschee, where he played for three seasons. During the 2013-2014 season, Weah represented for the New York Red Bulls’ U-13/14 Development Academy team, with his teammates including U-20 MNT and current Red Bulls midfielder Tyler Adams and Leicester City’s Kyle Gruno.

Weah went on trial with a number of teams in late 2015. While on trial with a European club that scheduled a friendly scrimmage against Paris Saint-Germain, he performed so well that PSG offered him a contract. Since then, Weah has worked his way up from the Parisian club’s U-15s to its U-19 side before signing a professional contract in June 2017

With the U-17 MNT

Tim Weah has fit in nicely with the U-17 MNT, helping the side with the 2016 Nike International Friendlies before it finishes as runners up at the 2017 CONCACAF U-17 Championship. Weah scored two goals for the U.S. in the tournament, which also served as qualifying for the 2017 FIFA U-17 World Cup in India. 

During the World Cup, the PSG attacker appeared in all three group games as the United States finished third in Group A. He then contributed in a big way, recording a hat trick in the USA's dominant 5-0 Round of 16 victory against Paraguay on Oct. 16. Weah's hat trick was the third by a U.S. player at the FIFA U-17 World Cup (Judah Cooks in 1993, Freddy Adu in 2003), but first achieved during the Knockout Stage of the tournament. It also propelled the USA to its first Quarterfinal appearance since 2005.

2017 CONCACAF U-17 Championship Format:

The CONCACAF U-17 Championship format features three groups of four teams. The previous tournament featured two groups of six teams.

As host, Panama was seeded at the top of one of the three groups, while Costa Rica and Mexico were also assigned as the remaining two seeds. Mexico earns its seed as the current CONCACAF champion, while Costa Rica’s seed came as the result of being the best-placed CONCACAF team from the last edition of the FIFA U-17 World Cup, excluding the regional champion and host.

The top two teams in each of the three groups will advance to the Classification Stage, which features two groups (D and E) of three teams each. In the Classification Stage, the top two finishers from each group will qualify for the U-17 World Cup to be played from Oct 6-28 in India. Additionally, the first-place teams from Groups D and E will play for the 2017 CONCACAF championship.
