Christian Pulisic cleared to play against Dutch in World Cup

Pulisic was taken to hospital after injuring his pelvic bone in a collision with the goalkeeper at the goal in the last group game against Iran.

DOHA, Qatar — Christian Pulisic was released for the USA in their World Cup round of 16 match against the Netherlands on Saturday.

The US Soccer Association said after practice on Friday that the American had been given the green light.

Pulisic left Tuesday’s last group game against Iran at half-time after injuring his pelvis in a collision with the goalkeeper on a 38th-minute goal. The Americans won 1-0 to advance.

Winger Pulisic, 24, was taken to hospital after half-time and then returned to the team hotel in time for the post-game celebration. Pulisic said Thursday he was feeling better.

US striker Josh Sargent left the Iran game in the 77th minute, three minutes after injuring his right ankle in a tackle by Majid Hosseini.

“We’re hopeful about Christian, I think a little less about him,” said US coach Gregg Berhalter before training. “At this point it is time. If you can pull it off, you do it. So I’m sure he’ll have that attitude.”

Haji Wright and Jesús Ferreira are the other forwards in the squad. Sargent started against Wales and Iran and Wright against England.
