NASHVILLE, Tenn.: Midfielder Weston McKennie did not dress for Sunday night’s World Cup qualifier against Canada after violating team COVID-19 rules.
McKennie, who plays for Juventus, had started Thursday night’s opening 0-0 draw at El Salvador and is among the top American players.
Unfortunately, I am suspended for tonight’s match due to a violation of team COVID-19 protocols, McKennie said in a statement he posted on Instagram. I am sorry for my actions. I will be cheering hard for the boys tonight and hope to be back with the team soon.
