Thee American winger Jonathan Amon isn't having exactly the times he dreamed. Actually the opposite. The 22-year-old winger, who had been out for 13 months due to a back and a knee injury, got back to the field back on October 8th. Now, there's no time table for his return.
Last Monday, October 19th, in the 1-0 triumph of the FC Nordsjælland over Randers for the Danish league, Amon came of the bench and scored his first goal in more than a year and a half. The last time he had strike was on May 2019. The game against Randers was just the second competitive game the young winger has played. Now, he will have to wait.
He has re-fractured one of his knees and FC Nordsjælland doesn't expect to have him back anywhere in the near future. The sporting director Jan Laursen, said that everyone in the club is very affected by Jonathan's injury because they all like him and also have very high expectations on him because of his great conditions.
Amon was born in Summerville, South Carolina, and got into the U.S. Soccer Development Academy of Charleston (SC) at 12 years old. After taking part in the U15 U.S. Soccer National Camp he was located by FC Nordsjælland and moved to Denmark. He made his professional debut in the Danish team in 2017 and months later, in February 2018, he made his debut in the debut in the U20 U.S. national team. Later that year, in November 2018, he made his professional debut in the Senior USMNT against Peru.
