U.S. Under-20 national team standout Marc Pelosi was not released by Liverpool for Under-20 World Cup qualifying, and now it looks as though he won’t be taking part in the Under-20 World Cup either even if the Americans qualify.
Pelosi suffered a broken tibia and fibula in his right leg on Sunday playing for Liverpool’s U-19 team. Richard Motzkin, Pelosi’s agent, confirmed the injury, calling it a clean break that will require surgery.
The news is devastating for a young player who had really made progress with Liverpool in recent months. Most recently, Pelosi was added to Liverpool’s Europa League roster, a clear sign that he was impressing first-team coaches.
