Bocanegra and Cherundolo out of USA’s clash with Colombia

USA captain Carlos Bocanegra and right-back Steve Cherundolo have returned to their respective clubs and will not play in Tuesday night’s friendly with Colombia.

The US host the South Americans at PPL Park in Chester, Pennsylvania but will be without their skipper and the Man of the Match from Saturday’s 2-2 draw with Poland.

Bocanegra has gone back to France to link up with Saint Etienne for their away clash with Nice on the weekend whilst Cherundolo has returned to Hannover for their German Bundesliga for their meeting with Bayern Munich.

FC Dallas duo Heath Pearce and Brek Shea joined the team Sunday in Philadelphia as replacements.
