Weston McKennie delivers fitness update for USMNT

Weston McKennie has delivered a positive update on his fitness ahead of the United States opening their 2022 World Cup campaign against Wales. 

The USMNT are due in action on Monday, when they take on Gareth Bale and Co in Al Rayyan, with the hope being that Gregg Berhalter will have a full squad from which to select. Juventus midfielder McKennie, who came through a friendly outing against Qatari side Al-Gharafa unscathed, says he will be in contention to face the Welsh as he has fully recovered from a thigh injury.

McKennie has said of linking up with the USA for a global gathering in the Middle East: “I came in good. I came in at a pace that was controlled by Juventus and the national team. They were both working together to make sure that I am 100 per cent fit here, so I came in and did a couple of days of just maintaining and keeping it under control. We played a friendly the other day and I felt good, felt ready to go. That’s where I’m at.”
