US midfielder McKennie set to return from injury for Juventus ahead of national team games

TURIN, Italy (AP) — United States midfielder Weston McKennie could return from injury this weekend, making it likely he will be available for the CONCACAF Nations League finals in two weeks.

It was thought McKennie would miss the matches at the Dallas Cowboys’ stadium after dislocating his left shoulder while playing for Juventus last month.

However, the 25-year-old midfielder participated in part of Friday’s training session with the rest of the Juventus squad and it is thought coach Massimiliano Allegri will call him up for Sunday’s match against Atalanta, as midfielders Adrien Rabiot and Carlos Alcaraz are still out injured.

The U.S. faces Jamaica in the Nations League semifinals on March 21 at AT&T Stadium, with the final three days later. U.S. coach Gregg Berhalter is set to name his squad on Monday.

Panama plays Mexico in the other semifinal.
