Well, that was fast.

On Monday, Augsburg announced that Ricardo Pepi had signed with the Bundesliga team.

On Saturday, the 18-year-old forward made his debut for the German club in its 3-1 loss at Hoffenheim.

The U.S. men’s international replaced Andi Zeqiri on the hour.

USMNT defender Chris Richards, who also came through FC Dallas, played the entire way for the winners.

Pepi signed a five-year contract that runs through June 30, 2026 with an option to extend it for another year. The transfer fee reportedly is more than two times the previous Augsburg acquisition. The move also was the largest player transfer fee in FC Dallas history.

Augsburg’s next game is set for Sunday, Jan. 16, when it hosts Eintracht Frankfurt.
