Man City goalkeeper Zack Steffen suffers World Cup blow as he withdraws from USA squad

Manchester City goalkeeper Zack Steffen has withdrawn from the USA squad for their June fixtures, throwing his World Cup chances into doubt.

Steffen has been the US men's national team's first-choice goalkeeper in recent seasons, but injury and form issues have seen him lose his place to Arsenal-bound shot-stopper Matt Turner this season. Steffen, who played nine times for City this season, had the chance to re-establish his claim for the No.1 jersey ahead of the World Cup for the June fixtures but has now withdrawn from the squad.

 

The USMNT say Steffen has withdrawn for family reasons, with New York City FC goalkeeper Sean Johnson called up in his place. The US face friendlies against Morocco and Uruguay, before CONCACAF Nations League fixtures with Grenada and El Salvador.
