Injured forward Charlie Davies visits U.S. soccer team in California

January 9, 2010

CARSON, Calif. -- Injured forward Charlie Davies has visited the U.S. soccer team at its hotel near training camp as he recuperates from injuries sustained in a car crash last October.

The 23-year-old broke several bones, including two in his right leg, and injured his bladder last Oct. 13 during the accident in the Washington, D.C., area. The U.S. Soccer Federation said he planned to return to Delaware after Friday's visit to continue rehabilitation.

Davies, who played for Boston College, is expected to miss the World Cup because of his injuries. He is in his first season with France's Sochaux.

A group of American players from Major League Soccer and Scandinavian clubs on break is preparing for a Jan. 23 exhibition against Honduras in Carson.
