USMNT attacker Josh Sargent scores against Zack Steffen in last game before World Cup

USMNT World Cup watch: Tyler Adams SENT OFF for Leeds in last game before Qatar, while Norwich attacker Josh Sargent scores against Zack Steffen – the goalkeeper surprisingly dropped by Gregg Berhalter

Josh Sargent appears to be raring to go for the World Cup, scoring in Norwich’s last game before the tournament against his fellow USA international Zack Steffen. Tyler Adams, meanwhile, was sent off for Leeds against Tottenham.

Midfielder Adams was shown a red card in the 86th minute for his second bookable tackle in the game at the Tottenham Hotspur stadium. Tottenham ended up winning the game 4-1 against Jesse Marsch’s team.

Adams’ red card has no impact on his availability for the USA at the tournament in Qatar.

Sargent put Norwich 1-0 up against Middlesbrough with his ninth goal of the season, latching on to a through ball and drilling it ruthlessly past Steffen.

The goalkeeper, on loan at Middlesbrough from Premier League champion Manchester City, was a surprise omission from Gregg Berhalter’s World Cup squad that was named this week.

Sargent is one of several English-based players who will join up with Berhalter’s team in Doha after this weekend’s fixtures.

Elsewhere, Brendan Aaronson provided an assist for Leeds in the game at Tottenham, setting up Crysencio Summerville to open the scoring.

Aaronson started alongside fellow American international Adams in the Leeds midfield, coming up against England captain Harry Kane, as well as Eric Dier who also made Gareth Southgate’s World Cup squad. 

And Kane gave Aaronson and Adams a first-hand warning of what might be to come by scoring Tottenham’s equalizer against Leeds.
