In One play


Sergino Dest was born in the sauce. He still lives in the sauce. Well, actually, that’s not true. Dest was born in the Netherlands and he lives in Barcelona. As a dual-national, his decision to play for the U.S. men’s national team instead of the Netherlands was one of the biggest moments of Gregg Berhalter’s tenure. When you watch Dest play, the first thing you’ll notice is how much he loves doing borderline random skill moves on the ball. He’s more than just a freestyler, though. Dest’s skill makes him an extremely valuable presence in the attack.
