U.S. national team defender Steve Cherundolo has been ruled out of action for up to a month with a shoulder injury he picked up in practice, revealed club Hannover 96 on its website on Sunday.
Cherundolo's injury likely rules him out of action for the U.S. team's upcoming friendly against the Netherlands on March 3, and comes at a time when Hannover 96 are battling to get out of the relegation zone.
Cherundolo's injury adds to the laundry list of potential U.S. World Cup players sidelined with injuries. DaMarcus Beasley (thigh), Charlie Davies (knee, elbow), Clint Dempsey (knee), Maurice Edu (ankle), Jermaine Jones (leg) and Oguchi Onyewu (knee) are all currently on the shelves.
What do you think of Cherundolo's injury? Worried about how this will affect his form? Just happy to hear the injury is not too severe? Which other right backs would you like to see called in for the Netherlands friendly?
