Yunus Musah leaves Valencia’s match vs. Barcelona with injury


History involving two U.S. Men’s National Team players was made in La Liga on Saturday, but one of them was forced out of action due to injury.

Yunus Musah exited Valencia’s showdown with Barcelona just before halftime because of apparent muscular problems. Musah was substituted in the 43rd minute of the match played at Camp Nou, minutes before Lionel Messi scored a first half stoppage-time equalizer.

The severity of the right midfielder’s injury was not immediately disclosed. The game ended in a 2-2 draw.

Fellow youngster Sergiño Dest also started in the encounter, which marked the first time two USMNT players faced off vs. one another in Spain’s top flight. Dest went the distance at right back for Barcelona in the stalemate.


    • Yes you are right, I have read if England get him he will play u21 ball VS senior nat team. So I have faith he will choose us since we are going to promote him to senior USA nat squad.

      • I wonder if GB sees him as a starter or first off the bench. He won’t show his intention until Musah commits. If Musah starts on the bench GB will have the flexibility to move Reyna to his more natural ACM and put a true winger (Morris) on the right side.

    • People should worry less about the position listed on the lineup graphic and more on what players are asked to do. What Reyna did for the NT in November is a lot closer to what he does and where he does it at BvB than what and where Musah did for NT.
