Club Tijuana left wingback Edgar Castillo will miss two weeks with the U.S. Men's National Team due to an injured foot, according to Brian Sciaretta of New York Times Goal Blog.

The USMNT is facing Antigua on Friday, Oct. 12, before traveling to LIVESTRONG Sporting Park in Kansas City for a game against Barbados in FIFA World Cup Qualifying. Castillo will miss both games with the injury.

Castillo has played with the USMNT since 2009 after being cleared by FIFA to join the United States team. A native of Las Cruces, N.M., Castillo began his career with the Mexican national team before a FIFA rule change allowed him to shift to the U.S., a move that was considered controversial by Mexican fans.

Sporting KC midfielder Graham Zusi, also a member of the USMNT, will be with the team in Kansas City on Tuesday to face Barbados.

The U.S. Men's National Team will have a training session open to the public at LIVESTRONG park on Sunday, Oct. 14 at 10:30 a.m. CT.
