U.S. men's national team striker Charlie Davies suffered unspecified injuries in a one-car wreck that killed another person in Northern Virginia early Tuesday, according to U.S. Soccer.
Davies needed emergency surgery, but was in stable condition at Washington Hospital Center in Washington, D.C.
Details are limited about the wreck, aside from that it occurred on the George Washington Parkway. Davies is in the nation's capital with the U.S. team, preparing for the squad's final World Cup qualifying match, Wednesday against Costa Rica. Team USA has already qualified for South Africa.
Davies is in Washington, D.C., with the U.S. National Team as the squad prepares for its final 2010 FIFA World Cup qualifying match, taking place tomorrow against Costa Rica at RFK Stadium.
Davies has scored four goal in 17 matches for the United States. He started and played 78 minutes in the USA’s 3-2 victory over Honduras Saturday.
Just last week, we had the chance to chat with Davies, one of the bright young stars of American soccer. That report is available here.
Also in U.S. Soccer news, the Americans have agreed to play a friendly in Denmark, another World Cup team, on Nov. 18.
