United States women’s national team goalkeeper Hope Solo will miss 3-4 months following Thursday’s left wrist surgery to repair torn cartilage.
Solo, Team USA’s starter when healthy, will miss about half of the National Women’s Soccer League season, which begins on April 13. Solo is one of Seattle Reign FC’s allocated national team players.
The news comes just a day after fellow goalkeeper Jill Loyden, who under new coach Tom Sermanni was just beginning to earn significant minutes, broke a left hand bone in training. Loyden is also expected to miss approximately three months. She was allocated to Sky Blue FC in the NWSL.
Nicole Barnhart started in net for Friday’s 5-0 US win over China. Ashlyn Harris is the only other goalkeeper on the Algarve Cup roster.
