HOUSTON (AP) — With injuries to Steve Cherundolo and Fabian Johnson, and Danny Williams’ lack of playing time, the U.S. has defensive worries heading into next week’s World Cup qualifier at Honduras, the opener in the final round to get to next year’s tournament in Brazil.

The Americans play an exhibition against Canada on Tuesday night, their only tuneup this year before the Feb. 6 qualifier in San Pedro Sula.

Regulars such as Jozy Altidore, Clint Dempsey and Michael Bradley remained with their European clubs for games this weekend and will meet up with the national team on Sunday in Miami.

Cherundolo and Johnson both sat out games with their German clubs over the weekend, and coach Jurgen Klinsmann says he’ll consider “all the alternatives” at outside backs.
