Recent U.S. Men’s National Team call-up Josh Gatt suffered a left knee injury on Saturday in the first-half of his team Molde FK’s 3-1 victory over Sarpsborg.
The 21-year-old midfielder, starting as a center forward on the day, was forced off in the 39th minute with what reports in Norway are calling a left knee sprain. Gatt was named to the final 23-man USMNT squad for the Gold Cup this summer, but the reports state that his participation in the tournament could be in doubt.
Gatt has made two substitute appearances for the USMNT, first appearing in the 2-2 draw at Russia last November and winning his second cap in the scoreless draw in January against Canada.
Though he has failed to score so far this season at club level in the Norweigian Tippeligaen, Molde manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has played him 11 times this season, nine of them starts.
