Description: Lindsey Horan is an American pro soccer player for the Portland Thorns FC of the National Women's Soccer League (NWSL), the third division of women's pro soccer in the United States. She is also the head coach of the club. Currently, in 2021, she has been named as the NWSL's Female Athlete of the Month. Prior to that honor, she was also the second-highest vote-getter for the player of the month honor.
Lindsey Horan has a professional playing career in the National Women's Soccer League (NWSL) with the Washington Spirit of the MLS. She was first selected by the Maryland Stars in the spring of 2021. She joined the Chicago Fire during the end of the 2021 season.
A vocal and passionate supporter of the Women's National Soccer Team, Horan has also donned the colors of the red, white and blue of the United States Soccer Team several times. As a member of the USW Soccer Team, she wore the number 19. Prior to joining the Thorns, she played for the Orange County Blues. Her two years in the O Cups were particularly frustrating because the team struggled in both competitions. However, she has since turned things around and has become a key player on the team.
As a member of the Thorns, Horan has also had the opportunity to represent her country at the Olympic Games. She was a part of the team that won the gold medal at the 2021 Summer Olympics in London. This marked the first time in the history of the USW Soccer Team that a female player had ever won an Olympic game. During the match, Horan was also named the tournament's Most Valuable Player. Additionally, in the bronze medal match against Brazil, Horan scored the winning goal. Despite the loss of her final game in the gold medal match, Horan still ranks second in the all-time record of games played by an American female athlete.
Unfortunately for Horan, the chance to represent her country in the Olympics came too late for her. Despite securing a place on the US squad, Horan was not able to compete for her country in the qualification tournament for the Olympics. For this reason, she decided to take a leave of absence from the team and look for new opportunities elsewhere. While in Europe, she signed a contract with Turkish club Fethiye. However, the Turkish club failed to grant her the needed visa and therefore she had to return to the US.
Despite having lost her opportunity to represent her country, Lindsey Horan is still a valuable member of the Thorns. While struggling in the league, she has also showed great skill on the field. In particular, she has impressed the coaching staff of the Thorns with her performance as a striker. The player is also being utilized as a substitute during the season for periods of time due to the lack of other strikers in the team. Despite some injuries, Horan has managed to play a significant part in the Thorns' campaign.
