Weston McKennie departs USMNT camp following violation of team policy
CHICAGO – The U.S. will close out the international window with its third World Cup qualifier in seven days when it takes on Honduras on Wednesday, Sept. 8 in San Pedro Sula (10:30 p.m. ET on Paramount+, Telemundo, Universo).
Following are updates on the USMNT roster:
Weston McKennie will not travel to Honduras and is returning to Italy.
“Weston will return to Italy and will be unavailable for the match against Honduras due to a violation of team policy,” USMNT head coach Gregg Berhalter. “There are high expectations for those who are a part of the U.S. Men’s National Team, and in order to be successful it’s important that everyone in the group is accountable.”
Jackson Yueill has been added to the roster ahead of the World Cup Qualifier against Honduras. Yueill, 24, is one of four players who appeared in the Nations League Final Four and the 2021 Gold Cup. The midfielder has made seven appearances in 2021 and has 15 caps to his credit overall.
Sergiño Dest has been diagnosed with a right ankle sprain and will not be available for the game against Honduras. Dest was injured in the 44th minute in the 1-1 draw against Canada.
