USWNT’s O’Hara begins World Cup prep with surgery, 8-12 weeks out
Kelley O’Hara is set for some time on the mend as the United States women’s national team begins its preparation for this summer’s World Cup.
O’Hara, 30, will miss 8-12 weeks after undergoing surgery to remove “loose bodies” in her ankle, according to a U.S. Soccer press release.

That means the 112-times capped defender will not play in next month’s newly-announced European friendlies against Portugal and Scotland.
O’Hara scored in the 2015 World Cup semifinal, and has an Olympic gold to go with that tournament title. She’s won two SheBelieves Cups and three Algarve Cups.
