USA fans take note: Josh Sargent provides injury update ahead of World Cup


Norwich City and United States star Joshua Sargent has, on Saturday evening, provided an update on his wellbeing.

For those not aware, hitman Sargent set alarm bells ringing across his country’s fanbase earlier today.

This came upon the 22-year-old, expected to play a central role for the USA at this month’s World Cup, departing the action prematurely, in evident discomfort.

After opening the scoring en route to Norwich’s concerning 2-1 defeat at the hands of Middlesbrough, Sargent, late in proceedings, went to ground with what appeared to be an ankle problem.

Attempts to run the issue off proved futile, culminating in the hitman being replaced in Dean Smith’s frontline by Jordan Hugill.

Post-match, it therefore came as little surprise when the subject of his wellbeing was put to none other than Sargent himself.

The former Werder Bremen talent, though, was keen to put to rest any lingering concerns surrounding his status for the World Cup.

Speaking to Michael Bailey, Norwich City correspondent for The Athletic, Sargent confirmed that his ankle is ‘fine’, meaning fans need not fret.
