WATTFORD, England: American Josh Sergeant’s first goal in English football gave Norwich City a decisive 3-0 victory at Watford on Friday, a victory that saw Dean Smith’s team out of the Premier League relegation zone for the first time this season.
Following a weak first half for both sides, Sergeant’s stunning flick finish six minutes after the break gave visitors the lead as he opened his Premier League account in style.
After a bizarre break in the game, many floodlights went off, the night of the sergeant’s recollection continued as he drilled from a distance to double his side’s advantage in the 74th minute.
Watford’s bad luck continued as Emanuel Dennis was sent off four minutes after receiving his second yellow card.
The hosts’ miserable evening came to an end when Juraj Kuka’s stoppage-time scored to give the visitors a 3-0 victory.
With Norwich’s fourth win of the season, they are 17th with 16 points from 22 matches. Watford finished 18th out of 20 games with 14 points.
