Rookie midfielder Rose Lavelle will miss the next four to six weeks with a strained left hamstring, the Boston Breakers announced Wednesday.
Lavelle injured her hamstring on Sunday in the 85th minute the U.S. women’s national team’s 1-0 win over Norway. The injury occurred in Lavelle’s sixth international appearance and a game after she scored her second international goal, in the USWNT’s 1-0 win over Sweden last Thursday.
The rookie made her USWNT debut on March 4 at the SheBelieves Cup vs. England, just weeks after being selected No. 1 overall in the NWSL College Draft. She has two goals and one assist so far this NWSL season and was named April Player of the Month.
