Unlike most of you, I think CP allowed Sargent to take the penalty for several very important reasons: 1. CP was protesting Sargent not starting this match and likely not joining the team for the gold cup. 2. As a leader he wanted to make it clear, he supports Sargent and wants his confidence to boost. 3. He wants other young players on the team to be leaders as well. I personally like this move. It shows maturity, awareness and most importantly, protest. Too bad he missed it, but I guarantee the kid will spend the next 5 years taking 40 penalties a day.
