Christian Plessis, the star of the US men’s national team, was ruled out of the second half of Wednesday’s World Cup qualifier against Honduras due to a leg injury.
The Chelsea winger was forced out in the 62nd minute of Wednesday’s match after trying to play with a notable lameness.
Despite recovering from a recent coveted 19, Christian Rolden replaced Police, who played all 90 minutes against Canada on Sunday, and the United States drew 1-1 with Los Catarachos in San Pedro Sola at the time.
USMNT Injury Concerns.
Polysic’s injury comes amid a number of problems for the United States, which has returned to the team of several key players during the international break.
After seeing Tim Wey shortly before camp, Gio Reina and Sergio Dest left the team after suffering their own injuries.
Zack Stephen was also unable to stand out, having a positive experience for the Cowed 19 after battling a back injury, while Weston McCain did not feature against Canada or Honduras for violating the Cowed protocol.
Next to Pulisic.
Wednesday’s match is the last international break for USMNT, with Plessis returning to Chelsea in the coming days.
Chelsea are set to host Austin Villa on Saturday before starting their Champions League title defense against Zenit on Tuesday.
The USMNT, meanwhile, will return to World Cup qualifiers next month as they host Jamaica on October 7.
