Josh Sargent suffers ankle injury in latest goalscoring performance

Josh Sargent suffers ankle injury in latest goalscoring performance

Josh Sargent’s day begin with the American striker scoring the opening goal at Stoke City, but ended with worry about his immediate future.

Sargent suffered a tweak to his ankle in the Canaries’ 3-0 English Football League Championship win over the Potters. The recent U.S. men’s national team call-up delivered the opening goal for David Wagner’s men before being substituted off in the 82nd minute.

Sargent’s close-range finish in the 24th minute broke the deadlock at the Bet365 Stadium, giving him his 10th goal of the new year and 14th overall this season.

Gabriel Sara and Ashley Barnes both added tallies of their own to further extend Norwich City’s advantage to 3-0. Sargent watched the final few minutes from the sidelines though due to a sore ankle, which could potentially rule him out of international duty.

 “Josh [Sargent]’s ankle is sore, he got another knock and a little bit of a twist; he has an ice pack on it, so we have to for sure assess this,” Wagner said postmatch in a club interview.

Sargent hasn’t featured for the USMNT since the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar and is in risk of missing his latest opportunity.

The USMNT hosts Jamaica on Thursday in CONCACAF Nations League semifinal action while Norwich City enters a break from league play.
