For those hoping to see Christian Pulisic to share a midfield with Tyler Adams and Weston McKennie, we'll have to keep waiting. 

Both Pulisic (calf) and Adams (back) have been forced to withdraw from the USMNT's latest squad for friendlies against Peru and Colombia. Philadelphia Union'sFafa Picault has been added to the squad, who has earned one cap with the US national team. 

Pulisic missed Borussia Dortmund's Champions League game Wednesday against Monaco while Adams was absent from the Red Bulls' 2-0 win over Atlanta United last weekend.
