Horan Ruled Out of April Matches; Howell Earns Call-Up

CHICAGO (March 29, 2017) – U.S. Women’s National Team midfielder Lindsey Horan has been ruled out of the upcoming training camp and matches against Russia due to a hip flexor strain.

In her place, U.S. head coach Jill Ellis has given a first call-up to 17-year-old midfielder Jaelin Howell. The 5-foot-8 Howell was a starter in the center midfield for the USA at the 2016 FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup in Jordan last fall. Horan will remain with her club Portland Thorns FC and continue her rehabilitation.

Howell, who hails from Windsor, Colorado and plays for the same club (U.S. Soccer Girls’ Development Academy member Real Colorado) as 18-year-old U.S. midfielder Mallory Pugh, is currently with the U.S. Under-23 Women’s National Team in Portland, Oregon. She will miss the USA’s third match of the Thorns Spring Invitational on April 1 against the Chicago Red Stars to join the U.S. team in Texas tomorrow.

Howell started and played 72 minutes for the U.S. U-23s against the Houston Dash on Sunday, March 26 in Portland and will be available to play against the Thorns tonight at 7:30 p.m. PT.  The match will be streamed online at http://www.timbers.com/thornsfc.

The WNT also lost midfielder Morgan Brian from the training camp roster due to injury.

The USA will face Russia on April 6 at Toyota Stadium (7:30 p.m. CT on FS1 with the pre-game show starting at 7 p.m.). It will then travel to Houston for the second leg of the two-game set against Russia on April 9 at BBVA Compass Stadium (1 p.m. CT on ESPN).

Hall of Fame - Shannon MacMillan: The Goal Scoring Supersub

Any competitive elite soccer player will tell you that being a consistent starter is the goal. You want to be on the field representing your team and battling from the first minute to the last. That said, being a substitute may be even harder mentally. Not everyone is the best player coming off the bench. To be a good reserve, you must be mentally locked in, resilient and ready to make something h Read more

Hall of Fame - Brandi Chastain: A Celebration Like No Other

Achieving fame and a legendary status in sports usually comes because of a combination of two things: 1) you’re one of the best at your craft and, 2) you are the author of a moment (or moments) so mythical, that it remains etched in the minds of generations to come. Think Jason Lezak’s come-from-behind relay swim against France in the 2008 Olympics, or Keri Strugg landing her vault Read more
