Christian Pulisic misses warm up against Japan

American football player Christian Pulisic is out of action and is set to miss the warmup match against Japan. The U.S. Soccer Federation (USSF) said Pulisic was out “because of a knock he took in training earlier this week.” The USSF has claimed it was too soon to figure out whether he will be available for Tuesday’s friendly against Saudi Arabia in Murcia, Spain.

Tim Weah, Yunus Musah, Chris Richards, Antonee Robinson and Zack Steffen also were not in the squad because of injuries. Moreover, Miles Robinson will miss the World Cup because of a torn Achilles.

Due to injuries and suspensions, Pulisic, Adams and McKennie have played together only four times, a 2019 friendly against Ecuador, World Cup qualifiers against Honduras and Canada in January, and a June friendly against Uruguay.

Big names and Key players absence on regular basis is not a good sign for American football.

With the World Cup knocking doors in a couple of months, the Americans are back after missing the 2018 tournament, they start off their campaign opener against Wales on November 21, after that they lock horns with England four days later and close the first round against Iran on November 29.

On the other hand, Japan is preparing for its seventh straight World Cup edition, they start off against Germany on November 23, meet up with Costa Rica four days later and closes group play against Spain on December 1.
