We are two days away from the United States Men’s National Team entering their final period of World Cup qualifying matches, and they will do so without the services of a few key players. The USMNT’s injury list, ahead of another renewal of the heated rivalry with Mexico, has grown with the addition of Brenden Aaronson, who will miss the next trio of matches, with a knee injury.
The RB Salzburg midfielder will miss against El Tri on Thursday, as well as clashes against Panama and Costa Rica later this month. It’s another setback for a Stars and Stripes team who must get as many points as possible now, or risk falling to fourth, and with it, a playoff spot for World Cup qualification.
