Berhalter: Pulisic ‘day-to-day’ for U.S. friendlies

Chelsea attacker Christian Pulisic and Juventus midfielder Weston McKennie have arrived at the U.S. men’s national team training camp in Swansea, Wales.

In the wake of Joshua Sargent‘s withdrawal from the squad due to COVID-19 quarantine protocols in Germany, doubts had been raised in recent days as to whether either player would attend.

Pulisic was dealing with a hamstring injury while McKennie was attempting to navigate his way through European travel restrictions, but both are now in camp.

“With Weston, we were able to get him out of Italy and the situation is changing by the hour…Josh Sargent wasn’t able to join the team but Weston is able to come,” U.S. manager Gregg Berhalter told Fox Sports on Sunday evening.

There is still uncertainty as to whether Pulisic will play in either of the United States team’s scheduled friendlies, including a match against Wales on Nov. 12 followed by a second game against Panama to be held in Wiener Neustadt four days later.

“Christian is in camp and is listed as day-to-day,” said Berhalter. “It really says a lot about Christian that he wasn’t playing for Chelsea but he wanted to come into this camp and be around the team and his status is day-to-day.”
