U.S. Midfielder Stuart Holden has Torn ACL
(CHICAGO) -- U.S. national team midfielder Stuart Holden has a torn right ACL.
Holden suffered the injury in the 18th minute of the United States' 1-0 victory over Panama in the Gold Cup Final Sunday.
Holden took a hit to his left knee when he collided with Panama's Alberto Quintero, but he was clutching his right knee when he fell to the ground.
"We are absolutely devastated for Stuart," U.S. head coach Jurgen Klinsmann said. "He is such a great part of our team on the field and the locker room. He worked tremendously hard to recover from previous injuries and had really come back into form."
