MCLEAN, Va. (AP) — United States forward Josh Sargent could miss Saturday’s friendly against Colombia and could be dropped from the Copa America roster.

A 24-year-old from O’Fallon, Missouri, Sargent scored 16 goals in 26 league games with Norwich in England’s second-tier League Championship but finished the season while playing with foot swelling.

“He’s not going to be fit to play in the Columbia game. We’ll have to see if he makes it for the Brazil game, and then we’ll have to make a decision if he makes it on the Copa America roster,” U.S. coach Gregg Berhalter said Friday.

After the U.S. plays Colombia at Landover, Maryland, it meets Brazil on Wednesday at Orlando, Florida. At the Copa America, the U.S. has first-round matches against Bolivia (June 23), Panama (June 27) and Uruguay (July 1).

Folarin Balogun, Ricardo Pepi and Haji Wright are the other forwards on the U.S. roster.
