CHICAGO – Club Tijuana midfielder Paul Arriola has been added to the United States’ roster ahead of Tuesday’s World Cup qualifier at Panama.
In the same press release distributed Saturday, U.S. Soccer also announced that defenders John Brooks and Michael Orozco, midfielder Sebastian Lletget and forward Jordan Morris have been released from camp due to injuries.
After scoring the opening goal, Lletget was forced to leave Friday’s 6-0 win against Honduras in the 18th minute after suffering a left-foot injury. Having dealt with a sinus infection during the week, Brooks also departed the match in the 70th minute.
Morris (right ankle) and Orozco (right knee) carried injuries into the Hexagonal encounter in San Jose, California, and did not dress for the match.
The 22-year-old Arriola has scored one goal during the qualifying campaign for Russia 2018, netting in a 4-0 win over Trinidad & Tobago on September 6, 2016.
