Lindsey Horan made history two years ago when she decided to forego college powerhouse North Carolina for the chance to play professionally for Paris Saint-Germain.
Horan’s time with PSG has been successful, leading to call-ups to the senior U.S. women’s national team, and the forward is headed to the U-20 Women’s World Cup in Canada next month with hopes of helping the U.S. repeat as champions.
And according to the Denver Post, Horan is set to continue playing for PSG for another two years after signing a new deal.
“I think I developed more this year, so I’m really happy about that,” Horan said. “I’ve gained a lot of experience playing with some of the top players in the world from different countries. Physically and mentally, I got a lot stronger.”
With Abby Wambach, Alex Morgan, Christen Press, Sydney Leroux, Amy Rodriguez and Sarah Hagen ahead of her on the depth chart for U.S. forwards, Horan knows that she’s unlikely to feature in next year’s senior World Cup, but she finally has her chance at the U-20 World Cup stage after missing the last edition due to a knee injury.
“It’s really huge to me,” she told the Post. “It would be cool to win a World Cup, and I think it would be good for my career as well.”
Horan confirmed on Tuesday that she re-signed with the team:
