Good news for the LA Galaxy and U.S. Men’s National Team, as it appears that neither will be missing midfielder Sebastian Lletget for too long.

Lletget was forced off the field on Friday during the 18th minute of the eventual USMNT 6-0 rout of Honduras, as he appeared to be severely hampered by a left foot injury. However, an evaluation of the sprained foot on Sunday showed no significant damage. Lletget is slated to see a specialist on Monday.

Opening the scoring for the USMNT in the fifth minute, Lletget tapped home a rebound from a saved Christian Pulisic shot to net the eventual game winner early for the Americans. His goal started a deluge that would see Pulisic add a goal of his own while notching two assists, captain Michael Bradley score one from outside the box, and returning veteran Clint Dempsey marking his big comeback with a hat trick.

While the injury to Lletget does not seem serious, the Galaxy have not stated whether he will be available for the team’s next match on April 1st against the Vancouver Whitecaps.
