‘While I’m excited and super optimistic about my future as a footballer, I’m sad to share that I won’t be physically ready for selection to our US World Cup team,’ Macario said in the post.

‘The desire to return to play for my club and country has driven my training and fueled my everyday life. However, what’s most important right now is my health and getting fit and ready for my next club season.

‘I am eternally grateful to Aspetar Orthopedic and Sports Medicine Hospital for always supporting me and guiding me in my rehab, and to US Soccer and [USWNT manager] Vlatko Andonovski for prioritizing my long-term health over any individual and collective ambitions’.

‘I’ll be cheering hard for my teammates at the World Cup, and I look forward to dedicating myself to fight to earn a spot for what I hope will be a long future on the US national team.’
