Tyler Adams will not take part of the United States men’s national team matches in March. The Leeds United midfielder suffered a hamstring injury earlier in the week. He will miss a Premier League matchup with Wolves on Saturday, as well.

“Tyler Adams has sustained a hamstring injury in training this week and will therefore not be joining up with the USMNT for international duty after Saturday’s game with Wolves,” a statement by Leeds read on Wednesday. “The midfielder will remain at Thorp Arch for further assessment.”

Despite the disappointing season by his club, Adams has been a standout performer for Leeds during the campaign. The 24-year-old defensive midfielder was also named captain for the USMNT ahead of the 2022 World Cup. He became the youngest player to captain the Stars and Stripes since 1950.

Key players return thanks to international break

USMNT interim head coach Anthony Hudson is bringing back some key players ahead of the upcoming fixtures. In fact, only Alan Soñora and Alex Zendejas keep their place from the January team roster. Christian Pulisic, Tim Weah, Brenden Aaronson, and Weston McKennie highlight the roster revealed on Wednesday.

However, one player in particular was perhaps the main focus of attention: Gio Reyna. The Borussia Dortmund star’s name has been in the headlines recently following an investigation showed that Claudio Reyna pestered U.S. Soccer over his son, Gio. Despite the negative news, Hudson claimed on Wednesday that Reyna is still a part of the USMNT setup.

Hudson says Gio Reyna situation is settled

“As I’ve said before, the situation during the World Cup was handled as a group, there was a positive response from the player, and we all moved forward,” Hudson said in a Q&A with U.S. Soccer.

“Clearly it became a bit more complex in the months since the World Cup, but as far as we’re concerned Gio is a part of our program. He’s a good guy and a top talent and he is evaluated like any other player. We made the roster decisions based on what gives the team the best opportunity to win these games and we brought him in because we think he can help us do that.”

Reyna, along with the 23 other players, face Grenada and El Salvador later this month. The two fixtures are part of the CONCACAF Nations League. The USMNT will first travel to Grenada on March 24th and then host El Salvador three days later.
