Steffen left the United States' CONCACAF Nations League final against Mexico on Sunday night with the score 1-1 in the 69th minute. U.S. coach Gregg Berhalter said Tuesday that Steffen will need a recovery time of about 10 days.
Steffen is the backup goalkeeper to Ederson at Manchester City. Ethan Horvath of Club Brugge replaced Steffen and saved Andres Guardado's penalty kick in the 124th minute as the U.S. won 3-2 in extra time.
