USMNT head coach Gregg Berhalter confirmed Weston McKennie and Antonee Robinson underwent fitness tests on Tuesday to determine their eligibility for Wednesday’s World Cup qualifier match against Costa Rica. 

Neither player traveled to Panama for Sunday’s 1-0 loss to the Canaleros. 

Juventus midfielder McKennie was ruled out due to a quadricep injury he picked up in the previous match against Jamaica, flying directly to Columbus to receive further treatment. 

“He pushed it a little bit yesterday, and the signs are he’s making progress,” said Berhalter about McKennie. “But we’ll have to see today in training.”

The organization originally stated Fulham’s Antonee Robinson avoided the Central American country to evade quarantine upon returning to the United Kingdom, but the player later confirmed in a press conference he faced ‘a little issue’ with his knee.
