USMNT stars Pulisic and Steffen to miss World Cup qualifying opener at El Salvador

The Premier League duo were named to the U.S. roster but won't be able to play Thursday's opener in San Salvador

U.S. men's national team star Christian Pulisic has not traveled to El Salvador ahead of Thursday's World Cup qualifier, head coach Gregg Berhalter has confirmed.

Pulisic tested positive for Covid-19 last month, setting up a race against time for him to be ready for the USMNT's opening three World Cup qualifiers.

The Chelsea attacker won't be able to face El Salvador but could still play against Canada on Sunday or Honduras next Wednesday.
