Gareth Bale missed LAFC’s 3-2 play-off win over local rivals LA Galaxy with a leg injury as his MLS nightmare continues.
The 33-year-old joined the USA squad in June after leaving Real Madrid, where he won the Champions League five times.
However, Bale has had a tough time so far in the United States, scoring just two goals for his new club in 12 appearances.
Things got even worse during the week when he suffered a problem with his leg, forcing him out of the Los Angeles Derby.
Bale’s side, however, sealed a dramatic late win over rivals LA Galaxy to reach the Western Conference final through Cristian Arango’s stoppage-time winner.
Wales fans will no doubt fear for Bale’s fitness with the World Cup only a month away.
But LAFC head coach Steve Cherundolo revealed after the match that the former Tottenham Hotspur star could return to action soon.
The 43-year-old said: “He should return to training very soon in the next few days.
