In an exhibition match with Jamaica, Dest, now a FC Barcelona player, awarded a solo with a superb shot from 20 yards, which meant the United States 1-0. The match ended in a 4-1 victory for the Americans.
Dest, who has a Dutch mother and an American father, was once in the picture with the Dutch national team, but the defender decided to play for the United States in late 2019.
“Sergiño is ill,” concluded teammate Brenden Aaronson, who plays for Red Bull Salzburg. “He’s so good, man. It’s hard enough to suddenly play on the left flank, but then he walks in and shoots that ball, boom, brilliantly in the far corner. I wasn’t expecting anything else. He has so many qualities.
Dest ‘got along’ particularly well with Chelsea left winger Christian Pulisic. “I think the cooperation is good,” Barca said back. “On the ground, but also beyond. It’s getting better and I’m happy with the way Christian and I are playing together. We made some nice combinations.
National coach Gregg Berrhalter is happy to continue embroidering on the Dest-Pulisic tandem. “We have a lot of options on the right flank, so sometimes it makes more sense to let Dest play on the left. If we can get these two guys through and move with the intention of getting to the back line, they become very difficult to defend. They are very fast and very technical. “
