Chelsea star Christian Pulisic has picked up a knock in training for the US national team ahead of their friendly against Japan.
The Chelsea forward was left out of the squad list for USA vs Japan but reports suggest that is just a precautionary measure.
Chelsea Statement on Christian Pulisic injury
“Christian Pulisic is off today’s roster because of a knock he took in training earlier this week. He will be evaluated day-to-day for his availability to play against Saudi Arabia on Sept. 27 in Murcia, Spain,” U.S. Soccer said.
So, Pulisic could miss the game against Saudi Arabia as well. This is not great news for Gregg Berhalter who will have wanted his best starting lineup together for these final two friendlies.
