thumbnail Hello,

The Canada and D.C. United star is set for an MRI scan on Thursday after injuring his knee during Canada's 2-0 defeat to Panama in a World Cup Qualifier on Saturday.

Dwayne De Rosario injured his knee in Canada’s 2-0 defeat to Panama in a CONCACAF Group C World Cup qualifier on Tuesday, and there are worries it could be ligament damage.

The D.C. United star will undergo a scan on Thursday, as both club and country sweat over the star’s fitness.

“We don’t know,” Canada head coach Stephen Hart told reporters in Panama. “We have to do an MRI.”

The timing of any sort of serious injury couldn’t be worse for United or Canada, which both face testing periods over the coming weeks.

United, sitting on 41 points, are in a heated Eastern Conference playoff race, just one point out of the fifth and final playoff spot held by the Columbus Crew.

Canada, meanwhile, faces Cuba at BMO Field on Oct. 11 before playing an away match against Honduras on Oct. 16.
