Chelsea star Christian Pulisic has been ruled out of the United States’ matches against Canada and Cuba.
The winger suffered a hip injury during Chelsea’s win over Crystal Palace on Saturday.
“Christian is officially at this stage ruled out,” U.S. head coach Gregg Berhalter said. “We just got that information. This was a collaborative decision with the club. looking after the best interest of the player.
“These decisions are always difficult because this group and the coaching staff want nothing more than to have Christian here, but it was a risk we weren’t willing to take at this time.”
Pulisic has starred in recent weeks, scoring five goals in Chelsea’s last three league games.
