Houston Dynamo defender Corey Ashe received good news while Molde midfielder Josh Gatt is still waiting final word on injuries suffered over the weekend by two members of the U.S. Men’s National Team Gold Cup squad.
U.S. Soccer announced on Monday that Ashe was day-to-day with a thigh contusion while Gatt is awaiting the results of an MRI taken to determine the severity of a knee injury suffered over the weekend.
Ashe suffered the thigh contusion after a collision with Tim Cahill during the Dynamo’s 2-0 loss to the New York Red Bulls on Sunday.
Gatt suffered his injury during Molde’s 3-1 win vs. Sarpsborg on Saturday.
Both Ashe and Gatt have seen injuries cost them chances to play national team soccer, but as of Monday evening, the hope is that both will be able to recover in time to remain on the U.S. Gold Cup squad.
