CHICAGO (AP) — Cincinnati defender Greg Garza has left the U.S. national team training camp because of a strained quadriceps.

The U.S. Soccer Federation said Thursday that Garza will not be replaced. The roster dropped to 27 players.

The U.S. is training in Chula Vista, California, for a pair of exhibitions under new coach Gregg Berhalter. The Americans face Panama on Jan. 27 at Glendale, Arizona, and Costa Rica on Feb. 2 at San Jose, California.
