If the U.S. men's national team is to take a pair of World Cup qualifying results off of Jamaica, it will have to do so without the services of integral midfielder Michael Bradley.
Bradley's agent told FOX Soccer that he will miss the Sept. 7 and 11 matches against Jamaica after picking up a right thigh injury in training with AS Roma on Tuesday, one that is expected to keep him out for the next 2-to-3 weeks.
"The hope is that Michael can return after the international break or very soon thereafter," New York-based agent Ron Waxman said.
Bradley's absence means that the onus will likely fall on the likes of Jermaine Jones and Kyle Beckerman, who started in the midfield against Mexico with Bradley unavailable a couple of weeks ago, to control things in the center of the field against the Reggae Boyz.
What do you think of this development? Do you think the USA will have a problem against Jamaica without Bradley.
