Holden departs after only 27 minutes in under-21 game

MOST COMMENTED

[AMERICANS ABROAD] Stuart Holden's latest comeback bid at Bolton Wanderers began Monday with his start for the English club's under-21 team against Everton, but he had to leave the game after only 27 minutes.

Bolton tweeted that Holden had fallen to the ground going for a loose ball and after initially reporting that it "doesn't look good," it said he was able to jog off the field and run off unaided down the tunnel.

Holden, who had capped his 2013 comeback summer by starting in the Gold Cup final, suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee in the game against Panama. He was sidelined for most of two years following a knee injury suffered in March 2011 playing for Bolton. He was only European-based player to stay with the USA for entire series of five qualifiers and friendlies and then the Gold Cup in order to accelerate his comeback.

He was rewarded with a start in midfield ahead of Mix Diskerud, but he had to go off after colliding with Panama’s Alberto Quintero. Holden’s surgically repaired left knee hit Quintero's knee, but the injury was to Holden's right knee on which he put his weight as he braced for the challenge.

    We need him on the USMNT for WC 2014. As well as Timmy Chandler for Right Back. Hope they both get healthy in time for Brazil.
