After breaching the COVID-19 guidelines, Juventus player Weston McKennie has been sent back to Italy in disgrace and will miss his second consecutive World Cup qualifier.
On Monday, manager Gregg Berhalter announced the news, a day after the United States and Canada drew 1-1.
Landon Donovan, a former US captain, refused to identify the nature of the mysterious rule violation but chastised McKennie for his behavior.
‘This is one week of your life with three massive games, not only for yourself but for your team-mates and your country and the level of selfishness is beyond me. He is old enough to know you don’t put yourself in this situation. Would they win the game if he is on the field? I don’t know but their chances would go up a lot.
‘It doesn’t mean he is a horrible human being and he can learn from this but this can never, ever, ever happen again.’
