U.S. Soccer standout Christian Pulisic has joined the U.S. men’s national team in Nashville, Tenn.
After spending 10 days in quarantine in London after the 22-year-old midfielder-forward tested positive for COVID-19, Pulisic is preparing for the USA’s World Cup qualifying opener in El Salvador, according to The Washington Post’s Steve Goff.
Given that he hasn’t trained in 10 days, it was not immediately known if he would be available for Thursday’s match in El Salvador, and if he was game fit, how much time he would see on the field.
Pulisic, who plays for Chelsea in the English Premier League, traveled to Nashville with several other English-based USMNT teammates over the weekend, the Post reported.
The Americans travel to El Salvador to kick off the 14-game series on Sept. 2. After hosting Canada in Nashville, Tenn. Sept. 5, the Americans will return to Central America visiting Honduras Sept. 8.
