WORLD CUP QUALIFYING: U.S. forward Timothy Weah was unable to travel to Canada for Sunday’s World Cup qualifier because he did not meet vaccination requirements to cross the Canadian border, Coach Gregg Berhalter said.

Weah, who was involved in the play that led to the only goal in Thursday’s 1-0 victory over El Salvador, has received one vaccine dose and was infected with COVID-19 before he could receive his second shot, Berhalter said.

Berhalter said the team became aware of Weah’s situation “a couple of days ago” and had hoped it could be resolved before Sunday’s game.

“This was a nuanced technicality that we were hoping was going to get pushed through and, unfortunately, it didn’t,” Berhalter said.

Canada is undefeated through nine games and leads the group, one point ahead of the U.S. in second and two points ahead of Mexico in third. Panama is in fourth place, five points behind Canada.

EUROPEAN TOUR: Rory McIlroy moved within two shots of leader Justin Harding after the third round at the Dubai Desert Classic in the United Arab Emirates as the Northern Irishman tries to win the event for the third time.

McIlroy shot a 3-under 69 to get to 10 under at the tournament he won in 2009 and 2015. Harding maintained his lead with a 71 at Emirates Golf Club.

WORLD CUP: In the absence of Sofia Goggia, world champion Corinne Suter won the last downhill before the Beijing Olympics.

Suter had a dominate performance in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany, to finish 0.51 seconds faster than Swiss teammate Jasmine Flury for her first World Cup victory since Dec. 18, 2020. Cornelia Huetter of Austria was third, 0.78 behind.

Goggia would have been the overwhelming favorite to defend her Olympic downhill title, but she was injured during a super-G in Italy last week. The 29-year-old Italian sprained her left knee, partially tore a cruciate ligament and has a “minor fracture” of the fibula, along with some tendon damage.

Goggia has started physical rehab with the aim of returning in time for the Olympic downhill on Feb. 15.
