Manchester City goalkeeper Zack Steffen has tested positive for Covid-19 and will miss the USA’s upcoming World Cup qualifier against Honduras, US Soccer confirmed Sunday.

In a statement released a few hours before the US were due to play Canada in a CONCACAF qualifier, US Soccer said Steffen had contracted the coronavirus.

Steffen had already missed the USA’s 0-0 draw with El Salvador on Thursday after suffering back spasms in training last week.

Sunday’s announcement means the 26-year-old Manchester City reserve goalkeeper will play no part in any of the USA’s three opening games in the final round of CONCACAF qualifiers.

“Steffen’s positive result was confirmed through rigorous serial testing in accordance with US Soccer’s COVID-19 protocols,” US Soccer said.

“After his initial positive result, Steffen was isolated and contact tracing was initiated by US Soccer’s medical staff.”

The news was shared on Twitter by City Xtra, and it attracted plenty of attention from the club’s supporters.
