The U.S. women’s national team hadn’t played a game in almost two months, and they won’t play another one that counts until next month.
But there was one crucial part of Thursday night’s friendly that coach Vlatko Andonovski clearly wanted to take care of before the players ever entered the locker room.
After the Americans finished their routine 1-0 victory over Portugal, he had a quick word with midfielder Lindsey Horan.
Andonovski remarked, “I told her she was a monster on the field.”
Lindsey Horans Uswnt Showing Vs. Portugal Could Deep-Six …
His tenure as USWNT coach has lasted less than two years to date, and he has yet to lead the team in a major tournament. Therefore, it is too soon to declare Andonovski a good coach for the national team, despite his 18-0-1 record.
His enthusiasm in reassuring Horan that she had done well in the defensive midfield role usually played by Julie Ertz (the No. 6, in soccer jargon) showed he may be a good coach to play for at this level.
However, the USWNT boasts virtually unfathomable depth at every other position on the field save this one. Tobin Heath, who played right forward for the first part of the 2019 World Cup season before suffering an ankle injury, will not be able to participate.
Against Portugal, Christen Press stepped into that role. She has 145 international appearances and 60 goals. In the 73rd minute, Carli Lloyd came on as a substitute for starting striker Alex Morgan.
Childhood, Schooling, and Family for Lindsey Horan
A native of the United States, Lindsey Horan entered the world on May 26, 1994, in the city of Lakewood, Colorado. Mark and Linda Horan, her parents, are ecstatic that they were blessed with a daughter. Michael Horan, her older brother, is her older sibling.
Lindsey Horan’s interest in soccer began when she was 5 years old. She hoped that her mother could serve as her coach.
Lindsey’s childhood coach was Linda Horan.
Lindsey’s childhood best friend was Michael, her older brother. And Michael Horan always gave his sister his best shot, never thinking she couldn’t beat him.
Lindsey became the fierce, competitive soccer player she is now thanks to the sibling rivalry she and her brother shared.
Lindsey is a lifelong lover of Lionel Messi. Her Colorado Rush head coach Tim Schulz urged her to check out Lionel Messi’s games.
When Messi first gained international fame, he was merely a teenager.
Since then, Horan can’t stop thinking about him. She additionally requested that her parents get her a Messi jersey.
Salary and Net Worth of Lindsey Horan
The NWSL has set the 2022 salary cap for players at $650,000.
It’s safe to say that Lindsey Horan is one of the league’s top players. That means in 2022 she should expect a salary of $600,000–$650,000.
The wealth of Lindsey Horan is reported to be over $2 million.
Since she earns a six-figure wage, she enjoys a comfortable lifestyle comparable to that of her fellow athletes. As part of her lavish lifestyle, Lindsey takes extended trips across the United States.
There is, alas, nothing further known about her resources, such as a home, automobile, bank balance, etc.
Lloyd has scored more goals than all but five female players in the sport’s history. At the same moment, Tierna Davidson, a defender who can play either left back or central defence, entered the game.
After reading the Yates report, which details abuse and misbehaviour in the NWSL and women’s professional soccer, United States attacker Lindsey Horan said it was difficult to feel proud of her time with the Portland Thorns.
