U.S. national team striker Brian McBride has returned to the United States from his English club Preston North End to be examined and treated for what is described on the club Web site as a "blood clot in his armpit." U.S. Soccer press officer Jim Moorhouse said Thursday the federation had no definitive information on McBride's condition. He was to be examined by Columbus Crew team doctors on Thursday, and Crew press officer Jeff Wuerth said club management is awaiting the findings of the medical examinations. National team coach Bruce Arena is expected to name his roster for the Oct. 11 qualifier against Costa Rica either Thursday or Friday. McBride's selection for that match had been anticipated, but his condition might prevent him from playing.He missed more than a month of the recent MLS season and the first two qualifiers against Guatemala and Costa Rica in July because of a broken cheekbone. McBride has played three matches on loan with Preston North End, which earned promotion to the English First Division last spring. He was credited with an assist in his first game with the club and was named its Man of the Match in two of the three matches. -- By Ridge Mahoney, Soccer America Senior Editor
