Three players did not travel with the U.S. men’s national team for its next World Cup qualifier in Panama Friday.

The England-based duo of Antonee Robinson and Zack Steffen, along with midfielder Weston McKennie, will head directly to Columbus, Ohio in advance of USA-Costa Rica Wednesday.

Robinson and Steffen will not travel to Panama due to the quarantine requirements for those returning to the United Kingdom.

Following the 2-0 victory over Jamaica Thursday night, McKennie experienced soreness in his right quadriceps. MRI results from Frirdaya were negative.
