Pulisic withdraws from USA national team, returns to Chelsea

Christian Pulisic has dropped out of the USA national team to return to Chelsea in order to continue with his injury rehabilitation. 

The winger has not featured for the Blues in their last three matches, after picking an injury against Burnley in the Premier League

Despite carrying an injury Pulisic was called up to the national team, who are preparing to face Wales and Panama. 

In a statement from the team though, coach Gregg Berhalter confirmed their number 10 will not feature in the friendlies. 

"Christian is a big part of our group," Berhalter explained to reporters on Wednesday ahead of tomorrow's Wales clash in Cardiff as the coach revealed Pulisic's withdrawal," the coach said. 

Adding: "He has been working through an injury, but he really says a lot that he wanted to come into camp, be around the guys, and continue to be a leader with this team." 

Pulisic will not continue his recovery and hope he will be ready when domestic action resumes next weekend.
