USWNT’s Mallory Swanson “doing better” after injury, says Vlatko Andonovski
Following her torn patellar tendon, Mallory Swanson may miss the upcoming World Cup, but United States women’s national team manager Vlatko Andonovski has confirmed that Swanson is coping well emotionally. Swanson was injured in a match against Ireland and is set to undergo surgery soon. Despite her absence, the U.S. team is ready to move forward with players like Trinity Rodman, Lynn Williams, Megan Rapinoe, and Alyssa Thompson filling in the gap. However, Rapinoe is not in camp due to an injury. Andonovski considers Thompson to be an “exciting player” with “abilities to turn in small areas that not many players have” and says that Rose Lavelle will also not feature in Tuesday’s game due to a “little knock.” Becky Sauerbrunn, appearing in her 200th international match, will be honored before the match begins.
