Christian Pulisic has provided the most recent update on his injury ahead of his team’s match against the Netherlands in the FIFA World Cup Round of 16 on Saturday evening.
Pulisic confirmed that he did not sustain a testicular injury during the USA’s match against Iran.
The Chelsea player stated that he was hit on the pelvic bone.
Pulisic said (via The Guardian): “It was very painful.” That [pelvic] bone is there for a reason: to protect you. I hit it well. It was sore, but it is getting better.
“[I] didn’t get hit in the balls. “I am all right.”
He added: “I am going to go meet now with the team medical staff and make a decision on [training] today, just kind of see how I am feeling, taking it day by day. Right now, I am doing everything in my power to be able to be out there on the field on Saturday.”
