choking on china

We see you, Lindsey Horan

I think we can all agree that Lindsey Horan stole the show last night. She was so calm and confident with the ball. Julie Foudy was right-on when she said Horan is capable of stepping in to fill Lauren Holiday’s shoes (and now Rapinoe’s as well). She’s a physically strong player and equally smart with her final pass. In addition, she knows her position. When Brain or Heath moved up, Horan always dropped back and filled in the necessary gaps.  Unless she chokes against China in the next two matches, I’d say she’s got a spot on that Olympic team. Watch out Veterans, the new kids are coming for you.
