Jaelin Howell replaces Lindsey Horan on USWNT roster for SheBelieves Cup

CHICAGO – Racing Louisville midfielder Jaelin Howell will replace Olympique Lyonnais midfielder Lindsey Horan on the U.S. Women’s National Team roster for the 2022 SheBelieves Cup.

Horan, a 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup champion and two-time Olympian with 108 caps, has been ruled out due to knee irritation.

Horan will still come to training camp for evaluation by the USWNT medical staff.

The 22-year-old Howell has two caps for the USWNT. She made her debut against the Netherlands in November of 2020 and played one match at last year’s SheBelieves Cup, seeing 28 minutes in the tournament finale vs. Argentina to earn her second cap. Howell, the second overall pick in the 2022 NWSL Draft, is a two-time winner (2020 & 2021) of the MAC Hermann Trophy as college soccer’s top player for Florida State. She helped lead the Seminoles to the NCAA title last fall.
