Rose Lavelle will be out four to six weeks after suffering a strained left hamstring during the U.S. women’s National Team (USWNT) match against Norway on Sunday.
The Boston Breakers midfielder has scored two goals and has one assist in eight games with the Breakers this season. She also was named to both the April and May National Women’s Soccer League (NWSL) Team of the Month.
Lavelle also scored the lone goal for the U.S. in the team’s 1-0 win over Sweden last week. She has six caps with the USWNT.
