All eyes were on the US last week as they stunned many by beating Ghana in their opening World Cup game with a 2-1 victory. But joy was overshadowed by serious injuries to two of the star players, Jozy Altidore and Clint Dempsey.
Altidore left the game with a strained hamstring and Dempsey had a bloody nose after taking a high leg to the face.
The US coach says Altidore is healing well and should be able to play soon.
A second US player, Matt Besler, suffered tightness in his hamstring but is expected to play as well.
