U.S. men's national team members Michael Bradley, Mix Diskerud and Tim Ream have been withdrawn from the national team squad, according to the U.S. Soccer Federation.
The federation stated in an email that Bradley and Diskerud were dealing with minor injury issues and that Ream was given a leave for "personal reasons," reportedly the birth of his son. Diskerud later tweeted that his club, Rosenborg, had requested that he not be included.
The USA will kick off against Ukraine at 2 p.m. ET on Wednesday, March 5. The match was originally slated to be played Kharkiv, Ukraine, but was moved due to the political unrest in the country.
