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