CHICAGO (AP) — American midfielder Fabian Johnson will miss World Cup qualifiers against Honduras and Panama because of a right hamstring injury.

Sporting Kansas City's Graham Zusi was picked Friday by coach Bruce Arena to replace Johnson on his 24-man roster.

Johnson, who figured to start in left midfield, was hurt Thursday in Borussia Moenchengladbach's Europa League match against Schalke.

The Americans are trying to overcome an 0-2 start in the final round of World Cup qualifying in the North and Central American and Caribbean region.
