Sergino Dest named Man of the Match for Ajax in win over PSV Eindhoven

Sergino Dest, one of the young up-and-comers for the US men's national team, had himself a day in the Eredivise, earning Man of the Match honors for Ajax in the Dutch side's 1-0 victory over PSV Eindhoven. 

It was perhaps Dest's best match as a professional, and it came with some eye-popping numbers to confirm that notion.

Dest logged 86 touches and completed 85 percent of his passes, while also recording three tackles and two interceptions from his fullback spot.

That's a welcome sight for fans of the USMNT, who are hoping that Dest can emerge as a key cog in the Yanks' future as they begin 2022 World Cup Qualifying later this year.

The 19-year-old announced he would continue to represent the US on the international level back in October, despite dual-national eligibility that would have allowed him to represent the Dutch.
