ROCHESTER, N.Y. — Tobin Heath may not have trained this week, but she still says she’s ready to play in Saturday’s National Women’s Soccer League Championship game. Both Heath and Alex Morgan (left MCL sprain) are listed as probable for Saturday.
“It’s feeling good,” Heath said after Friday’s training session, during which she sat on the bench. “Obviously got some rest after the game and a lot of treatment. Hoping that it holds up for one more game.”
Heath declined to talk about the diagnosis of her injury. It’s a right foot injury.
So will her foot hold up if (and likely when) she plays?
“Absolutely. I feel confident with how it is and you never really know what is going to happen.”
Portland coach Cindy Parlow Cone said nothing has changed since Thursday’s practice, when Cone said both Heath and Alex Morgan should play “significant roles” in Saturday’s game.
Morgan trained in full on Thursday and Friday with a large left knee brace (pictured) and said she is ready to go, but will have to wait on the decision of Cone and Portland’s trainers.
