He was injured last set of qualifiers.


He had a fairly poor game against Costa Rica. Probably part of the reason Bruce didn't start him last night.

Bruce also switched A LOT of the starting lineup from Costa Rica, I'm guessing partially due to losing the game (although we didn't play poorly), and partially for rest/weather issues. Not a lot of recovery time between matches, and hot and steamy in Honduras. I think the only European-based player (the least equipped to deal with the heat) that started last night was Pulisic.

Bruce also flipped the starting lineups between the Trinidad and Mexico games in the last set of games, so it's no unprecedented for him. I'm not sure it was a great idea last night though.
