CHICAGO (AP) — Lindsay Horan was left off the U.S. roster for the SheBelieves Cup tournament because of a quadriceps injury.
It was unclear when the Portland Thorns midfielder was hurt.
Coach Jill Ellis announced 23 players for her roster on Tuesday. The United States opens with Japan on Feb. 27 in Chester, Pennsylvania, plays England on March 2 at Nashville, Tennessee, and closes group play three days later against Brazil in Tampa, Florida.
All four teams are among the top 10 in FIFA’s rankings and will play at this year’s Women’s World Cup in France.
All 23 Americans were on the roster for the team’s exhibition games against France and Spain last month.
The United States will hold a pre-tournament training camp in Tampa, that includes four additional players: goalkeeper Jane Campbell, defenders Merritt Mathias and Emily Fox and midfielder Allie Long.
