Eddie Johnson injured in USMNT practice, taken off roster for World Cup qualifiers

US Centennial shield-01-1.jpgMore bad news for the Sounders.

Forward Eddie Johnson suffered a left groin strain in training Wednesday with the U.S. men’s national team and has been removed from the roster ahead of World Cup qualifiers Friday against Jamaica and Tuesday at Panama.

Johnson was replaced by San Jose forward Chris Wondolowski. USMNT coach Jurgen Klinsmann also brought Earthquakes defender Clarence Goodson and Houston midfielder Brad Davis into camp, bringing the roster to 22 players, including Sounders FC’s own Brad Evans.

The extent of Johnson’s injury isn’t clear just yet. The federation said in a news release that he will undergo an MRI later in the day Thursday, presumably before heading back to Seattle.

One step forward (with the returns of Clint Dempsey, Steve Zakuani and Djimi Traore) seem to be met with another step back.
