Cameron to miss World Cup qual­i­fiers; Howard No. 1 keeper

Daily Local News (West Chester, PA) - - SPORTS -

CHICAGO >> De­fender Ge­off Cameron, mid­fielder Kyle Beck­er­man and for­ward Chris Won­dolowski will miss the United States’ World Cup qual­i­fiers against Mex­ico and Costa Rica with in­juries, and Tim Howard has re­gained the No. 1 goal­keeper’s job.

Howard, now 37, took a year off from the na­tional team fol­low­ing the World Cup, then late in 2015 and al­ter­nated with Brad Guzan.

Guzan started at this year’s Copa Amer­ica and while Howard has been a reg­u­lar since leav­ing Ever­ton to join Ma­jor League Soc­cer’s Colorado team this sum­mer, the 32-yearold Guzan has not ap­peared with Mid­dles­brough in Eng­land’s Premier League since Aug. 28.

“He thought he would be No. 1 there. He is not,” Klins­mann said dur­ing Face­book Live in­ter­view, adding that Howard “is back to No. 1.”

The Union’s Ale­jan­dro Be­doya and Her­shey na­tive Christian Pulisic (Borus­sia Dort­mund) were also named to the 26-man ros­ter.
