Chicago (AP) – Champions League winner Christian Pulisic threatens to fail at least for the US national team’s first World Cup qualifier after a positive corona test.
The former Dortmund football professional is in quarantine in England, according to selection coach Gregg Berhalter. “And we have to take him to the States as soon as he has finished quarantine and assess him,” said Berhalter. Chelsea FC midfielder Pulisic is part of a 26-man selection squad that has been nominated.
It is difficult to say whether the 22-year-old Chelsea midfielder will be available for the game on September 2 in El Salvador, against Canada on September 5 or against Jamaica on September 8. “There are a lot of tests that he has to go through before he gets here,” said Berhalter. Chelsea FC announced on August 20 that Pulisic had tested positive for the Sars-CoV-2 virus in the days before.
