Christian Pulisic didn’t feature in USA’s first game as he was held back to work on fitness after being quarantined for 10 days following a positive COVID-19 test result. The last competitive action he saw was on August 14th in Chelsea’s 3-0 win over Crystal Palace where he scored his first EPL goal of the season. It’s unclear whether Pulisic will be available for the game against Canada as coach Gregg Berhalter says his status is “day-to-day.”
Goalkeeper Zack Steffen also sat out due to back spasms and didn’t travel with the team to El Salvador, but New England Revolution ‘keeper Matt Turner played in his absence. Turner is one of the standout goalkeepers in MLS this season and should give USMNT fans no reason to worry when he’s in between the pipes.
Canada ended their first match with a 1-1 draw against Honduras, with former MLS player Cyle Larin notching the equalizer after being down 1-0. They commanded an impressive 66 percent of possession over Honduras, though both teams logged 15 shots overall and Honduras put three more shots on target than the Canadians did.
