Chelsea Star Ruled Out Of US Games

United States national team manager Gregg Berhalter has named a 23-man squad for the upcoming Concacaf Nations League clash with Canada and Cuba.

Chelsea star Christian Pulisic was conspicuously absent from the list of players released because of injury.

In-form Pulisic will miss the US games as a result of the hip injury sustained during the last Premier League match at home to Crystal Palace.

Christian Pulisic scored one of the goals as Chelsea beat fellow London side Crystal Palace 2-0 at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea took the lead through topscorer Tammy Abraham before Christian Pulisic added a second goal with both strikes coming during the second half of the game.

Christian Pulisic is one of the in-form forwards in European football after netting five goals in his last three league games and he would be a big loss for the United States.

Toronto midfielder Michael Bradley will also miss the US Games as he was left out of the squad named as a result of the ankle injury sustained during the MLS Cup final loss to Seattle Sounders.

Seattle Sounders beat Toronto 3-1 to win the MLS Cup.

The United States will face Canada in Orlando on Friday before traveling to play Cuba in Georgetown.
