Lindsey Horan has tested positive for COVID-19, United States soccer said in a release Wednesday afternoon.

"Horan is currently doing well and is observing the appropriate quarantine protocols," said U.S. Soccer. "Her positive test came during the U.S. Soccer’s pre-trip testing procedures. No other players have tested positive at this time."

The 2018 NWSL MVP will not travel to the Netherlands for the U.S. Women’s National Team's match against the reigning European champions on Nov. 27. She will be replaced on the National Team roster by midfielder Jaelin Howell.

Horan has appeared in 86 matches for the USWNT scoring 19 goals and totaling 28 assists. She was on the roster when the United States won the 2019 World Cup last year.

With the NWSL not having players report to training camp until February 1, this isn't expected to affect the Portland Thorns next season. 

We wish Horan a speedy recovery!
